Ryder Cup – Why José María Olazábal Is A True Leader That has to be one of the most exciting sporting events ever. Regardless of the result the 2012 Ryder Cup has had everything. To me there were two stand outs from this Ryder Cup; a Hollywood scripted comeback and an emotional captain that clearly leads by example and has the love and support of all those around him. The Ryder Cup (officially the Ryder Cup Matches) is a biennial golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States. The competition is jointly administered by the PGA of America and the PGA European Tour, and is contested every two years, the venue alternating between courses in the United States and Europe. The Ryder Cup is also the name of the trophy, after the person who donated it, Samuel Ryder. (Wikipedia) There are so many stories to come out of this Ryder Cup, The USA team dominating the first two days only for the Europeans to play unbelievably well on the last day to come back and win. Rory McIlroy arrived ten minutes before his start time but still won his game. Ian Poulter winning the last two holes to snatch a victory from jaws of defeat. There were so many wonderful anecdotes from this Ryder Cup it will truly be remembered as one of the greats. Why José María Olazábal Is A True Leader However, through all the greatness of this spectacle the man of the moment for me has to be the leader of the European team, Jose Maria Olazabal. He was Seve Ballesteros’s best friend and how fitting that he should bring his team home in the way that he did. The players loved him, they trusted him and they all believed in him. This victory is as much to do with his great all round leadership as it was the golf that was actually played. He is a true leader of men. The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born – that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led. - Warren G. Bennis A True Leader Leadership is an art and requires creativity. There are certain essential principles and techniques required to being a great leader. A good leader knows when it is time to change shape because they are highly attentive to those around them. Coming from a position of strength, a great leader takes risks by freeing up the creative genius in their followers to build their capability and multiply the talents of the organization. This will lead to community and greatness. By powerfully communicating a vision that motivates, and inspires followers, a great leader is able to transform his or her organization. A good leader needs to be able to laugh; a great leader needs to be able to laugh at oneself. Here are my five key traits of being a GREAT LEADER: You must have a vision – As a leader, you have to learn to communicate your vision or the vision of your company to the people you want to follow you. You must have passion – As a leader you must demonstrate passion: When you talk about your vision for the company or organisation, let your passion for your vision shine through. You must learn to be a great decision maker – A leader needs to make key decisions that can have a huge impact on your business. You must be a team builder – To become a great leader, you must develop a great team. Most leaders can’t do everything on their own and surround themselves with top people. You must have character – without character, all the other criteria don’t matter. All great leaders have taken steps to learn about their individual personality and what part it plays in their leadership style.
