It’s very easy to lead as you would like to be led but that doesn’t mean your followers do. Everyone has unique strengths and weaknesses. It’s your job as a leader to put your people in the right situations to maximize their potential. For me, I don’t like things sugar coated. Be blunt, tell me what I did wrong, and I’ll fix it. However most other people need things put in a more positive perspective, which is how I like to lead, with positive encouragement.

An example I always like to use is with my sister. When my sister and I were training together in high school, I was pushing her too hard. I was becoming a nag. (No one likes a nag). So I figured out innovative ways to motivate her. I would create fun competitions which would push her to train harder and longer. I learned an amazing lesson yet didn’t lose sight of my own purpose of mentoring, which is to push students out of their comfort zone to reach their full potential. .

Now, Zoe just graduated from UCLA, won the softball National Championship, and is in Israel qualifying for the 2020 Olympics. Safe to say I am a very proud brother!
