Brett Favre has been named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. This article makes for a great study in leadership. Coincidentally, the Packers have just hired a new CEO. This article makes for a nice little case study of what to look for in a leader and what’s required for success. The Packers are now thought of as a top quality sports organization, but it was not that way when I was growing up. For the 70’s and 80’s they were the laughing stock of the league and a humiliation to the city that loved them. It’s a story worth learning. Ron Wolf wrote a book called The Packer Way that I found surprisingly insightful for organizational leadership.
