Before You Eat – “Thanksgiving Two-Step

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your team on behalf of the Lead ‘Em Up family.

Before you eat today, whether it’s immediately before (during a toast or a prayer) or earlier in the day, together with your family go through the Thanksgiving Two-Step

What is a “Thanksgiving Two=Step?” – well Thanksgiving has two-steps to it; the Thanks and the Giving.

Go around the room and have each person share 1 thing they are thankful for this season.  Encourage everyone to share not just the “what” but also the “what about.” This will push for everyone to be more specific.  For example, “I’m thankful for my family.” That answers the “what” but have them answer the “what about” your family?

The second part of the Two-Step is the Giving – after they share the 1 thing they are thankful for, have them give thanks to a person in the room.  This can be as simple or as extravagant as the person wants to make it; the key is to offer up the affirmation of thanks and sharing from one person to another.  

We’ll be doing the Thanksgiving Two-Step, we hope you will to.  

Have a great day.

The Lead ‘Em Up family.  

Have fun and #LeadEmUp

Senior Responsibility

Building off a popular tweet recently shared by Adam Bradley, we need to be reminded of the role Seniors play in dictating the tone and culture of our team. Whether good or bad, they set the tone. But knowing that is only the first step, what you do to make sure they’re setting the proper tone is what’s most important. In this episode, you’ll learn strategies to help get your Seniors leaned into having the right mindset and setting the tone appropriately for your program.

Character Before Leadership

In this episode, we discuss the priority of character development. Many athletes skip past the part of character development and jump to leadership. This is a trap that many fall into which leaves their leadership coming up short.

Athletes need to understand they have to work on their character before they work on their leadership. Tune in as we share how and why character fuels credibility.
