The Power Of Transformation Based Leadership

A video is making the rounds on the Internet that was awesome. Take two minutes and watch what Sam Houston State's baseball coach Matt Deggs had to say about how he was impacted after being fired from his last job.

Matt Deggs Post Game Interview

I loved hearing the words he said about being unselfish and serving each other. Sacrificing for your teammate. When was the last time you could honestly say you sacrificed something for someone else?
There is no greater honor than the sacrifice for a brother. - Matt Deggs
The best part was when he talked about moving from transaction based leadership (data, get the job done, wins and loses) to transformation based leadership. When you care more about the people that you are leading than the numbers I truly believe the people will be able to reach a higher level of success and the numbers will take care of themselves.

I hope that I am able to have the impact that he is having in people's lives. You can hear what one of his players said about his coach in this video of Lance Miles. As a leader, what would people say about you if they were given the opportunity to speak?
