Emmanuel Acho | Why People Fail


Former NFL athlete Emmanuel Acho was asked, "What message would you put on a billboard for the world to see?"


He thought about it and then said:

"The reason most people fail is because they give up what they want most for what they want now. People don't fail because they aren't talented or skilled."

He then said he liked the quote, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Coach Buzz Williams | Transactional vs. Transformational


In the video below, Coach Williams explains the difference between being a transactional leader versus being a transformational leader.


When there is a transactional relationship, there is a finish line. Transformational relationships don't have a finish line - it's for life. Transformational relationships are so strong that they can bear the weight of the truth, while the truth is not the priority in transactional relationships because you are trying to check boxes, not help, develop, change, or grow.

2 - How would you explain the difference between being a transformational leader and a transactional leader?

3 - Would you consider yourself more transformational or transactional?

4- When do you think being a transactional leader is more effective?

5 - When do you think being a transformational leader is more effective?
