Great Leaders Lead By Example


In a memorable scene from Remember the Titans (directed by Boaz Yakin [Buena Vista Pictures, 2000]), Julius Campbell and Gerry Bertier get into an argument after practice. Gerry demands that Julius start playing a more unselfish style of football. As the argument continues, Julius confronts Gerry’s leadership as the team’s captain. When Gerry tells Julius he has the worst attitude he has ever encountered, Julius responds by saying, “Attitude reflect leadership.” This encounter turns their friendship and football season around. Gerry realizes that great leaders lead by example.
