“Well football teams are perhaps easier to control than political parties, I’m sure the Prime Minister would agree with me, but yeah I think every team needs discipline and a sense of self-belief and that’s important, that’s what leadership’s all about.”

Iain Duncan Smith

Notice – leadership is about the team. (Political parties have misconstrued who and what their team is.) CSW

“Affirmative action is a little like the professional football draft. The NFL awards its No. 1 draft choices to the lowest-ranked team in the league. It doesn’t do this out of compassion or guilt. It’s done for mutual survival. They understand that a league can only be as strong as its weakest team.”

J. C. Watts

Leadership strength comes from character, not comparison. To give strength and encouragement to others is the greatest display of character strength. CSW

“Find out what the other team wants to do. Then take it away from them.”

George Halas

In football maybe, but team work is winning work. Leadership is more about what I do than what I take from others. CSW

“In baseball, democracy shines its clearest. The only race that matters is the race to the bag. The creed is the rule book. And color, merely something to distinguish one team’s uniform from another’s.”

Ernie Harwell

Judgment is passed on the content of character, not the color of skin. CSW

“Basketball is a team game. But that doesn’t mean all five players should have the same amount of shots.”

Dean Smith

Team work is knowing and fulfilling your role as to the best of your ability. CSW
