Champions Write History: Football Hall of Fame

Last week I was in Ohio delivering my accountability workshop, so I visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

Displays of pro football’s early years were interesting. The interactive presentations were thought-provoking.

But what struck me most powerfully were the exhibits chronicling the football dynasties of the Green Bay Packers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys and, most recently, the New England Patriots. The amount of attention these champions command reminded me of Winston Churchill’s quote that, “History is written by the victors.”

Leaders have numerous ways to leave a legacy.

What history will you write?
