A lot of classic business culture uses the lexicon of competitive conflict; a lot of terms derive from war and sports. These are considered classic examples of leadership and the analogies and metaphors are thick. So it’s interesting to read Abby Wambach’s Wolfpack, where she takes lessons learned from the top echelons of competitive soccer to turn classic leadership rules on their heads. In this episode Blake and I share our takes on the book.

Here are her 8 rules, in summary:

  1. Create your own path.
  2. Be grateful for what you have AND demand what you deserve.
  3. Lead now — from wherever you are.
  4. Failure means you’re finally IN the game.
  5. Be FOR each other.
  6. Believe in yourself. Demand the ball.
  7. Lead with humanity. Cultivate leaders.
  8. You’re not alone. You’ve got your Pack.
