Vince Lombardi on leading & winning

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Arguably the most inspiring coach of all time, Vince Lombardi turned the also-ran Green Bay Packers into a football dynasty.

Under Lombardi’s leadership in the early 1960s, the Packers collected six division titles, five NFL championships and two Super Bowl victories.

Fortunately, Lombardi was not shy about expressing his leadership philosophy, which comes across strong and clear in these quotes:
  • “A leader must ... back up the group, even at the risk of displeasing superiors.”

  • “Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

  • “The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.”

  • “Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”

  • “Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.”
