One of my favorite shows is Ted Lasso and I am sad that season 3 was the series finale – there may be spin offs. I don’t always find gems to share on this blog while perusing LinkedIn – but recently, I did just that! I really like this post from Katie Jablecki about 12 Ted Lasso Leadership Lessons. I think the following applies to anyone in a position of leadership or in Real Estate- and for all of us in general!
1. Believe in yourself
2. Doing the right thing is never the wrong thing
3. All people are different people
4. See good in others
5. Courage is about being willing to try
6. Vulnerability is a strength not a weakness
7. Tell the truth
8. Winning is an attitude
9. Optimists do more
10. Stay teachable
11. Be a Goldfish – If you do something wrong do not let it define you. Forget it – like a goldfish – within 10 seconds.
12. Happiness is a choice
For those who have not watched Ted Lasso on AppleTV, it’s a really addicting show that is a lot less about soccer than it lets on. Ted (played by Jason Sudeikis) is a lovable character with great leadership traits. I especially resonate with numbers 1, 5, 7, and 11. In my line of work, I must always believe in what I’m doing (and in my clients) and tell them the truth. I had the courage to switch careers into real estate and not earn a steady paycheck while going through a divorce. And lastly when dealing with other people in the stressful situation of making one of the biggest purchases in their life, things get said to you or $h*t happens that you can’t dwell on, otherwise you will be out of the business, you have let things go – be a goldfish!
Which of these apply to you? Let me know in the comments!
