Leadership Mastery Series

There Are No Bad Teams, Only Bad Leaders.

“Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”- Henry Ford
“Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton

 Leadership is about well … LEADER—SHIP.  It’s about the leader.

  • This means taking 100% complete responsibility for the performance of your team.
  • Underperformance is NEVER the team, it is ALWAYS the leader.
  • This concept lines up perfectly with the core Life & Personal Improvement Principle of
    • You are 100% responsible for EVERYTHING in your life.
      • Including the results and performance of the people you lead, manage, and supervise.

Story:  Navy Seal training – boat crew 2 vs boat crew 6.

There are no bad teams, only bad leaders.

Other examples of this principle in action.

  • Steve Jobs of Apple Computer.
  • Howard Schultz of Starbucks.

How you can use this principle to improve your business and life.

  • If you are the designated leader, assume full responsibility. Then get trained ASAP.
  • If you are not the designated leader, then ‘lead the leader to better leadership’.
    • Remember, leadership is nothing but influence. You don’t need the ‘title’ to exert leadership.


  • There are no bad teams, only bad leaders.
    • Assume full responsibility for the results of your team.
  • Leadership is a skill and it can be learned.
  • If you are not getting the results you want, get training to get better.
