Adam Bradley, How to Lead ‘Em Up

Podcast

Adam Bradley

When leaders do their best, everyone’s better for it. That’s a bit of wisdom from this week’s guest. Adam Bradley is the founder of Lead ‘Em Up, a company that helps coaches develop their athletes into leaders both in sports and everyday life. Leadership is a lifestyle, after all, Bradley says. It can’t just come out in only one aspect of you or your players’ lives; it has to be present all the time.

Relationships are key to players’ learning leadership skills. If they trust you as a coach, mentor, or parent, and if you are able to communicate with them effectively, you can build a good relationship with them. Then, they can build that same kind of relationship with their fellow athletes. With that as the foundation of a team, players can learn the skills and build the courage to lead one another and boost their peers and teams to success.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Build a relationship foundation so players lead one another
  • Get to know players and build trust with them
  • Be intentional about communication
  • Develop better focus on tasks
  • Elevate leadership development to the level of skills development

Quotes:

“Maybe the home is the best training ground for your player as an athlete. Maybe it’s actually more effective than the hundreds of dollars you spend hourly on a trainer. Maybe there’s more value found in the little details of your parenting in raising this young son or daughter. That could be the game changer.” -Adam Bradley

“Leadership is a lifestyle. It’s not just in season. It needs to be all seasons.” -Adam Bradley

“How you do anything is how you do everything.” -Adam Bradley

“We’ve got to communicate in such a way that resonates, that makes sense, that gives them a frame of reference that they can comprehend.” -Adam Bradley

“We’ve got to recognize and be very intentional in a team environment that we truly are living out what we claim to be.” -Adam Bradley
