Great Leadership Quotes from Tom Brady


Good leaders get inspiration from a number of areas, some from popular books or Blogs, and many from everyday people.  I wasn’t planning on focusing on Tom Brady this week but the news cycle and Mr. Goodell convinced me otherwise.  Here are a few quotes from a leader I draw inspiration from that easily apply to what we are all trying to do, Quarterback a winning team.

Tom Brady on;


Excellence  –

I don’t care about three years ago, …….I don’t care about two years ago, I don’t care about last year.  The only things I care about is this week….

Focus & Execution –

If you don’t play to win, don’t play at all

Strategic Planning –

You want to know which ring is my favorite?  The next one.

Organizational Effectiveness –

Every quarterback can throw the ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but the mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness

Personal Leadership & Prioritizing –

I always try to do as much as I can do.  I’m never the person that does not enough, because I’d regret not doing enough and think I probably could have done more.  I probably go too far and then have to reel myself back in, which works in some things, and in other things, it doesn’t work….

Communication –

If I have to say something, I want it to be meaningful.


Any great quarterback can be used for this analogy, and I am admittedly biased for TB12.  Leadership is found in all shapes and sizes.  Using quotes from sports figures  resonates with staff better than quoting Maxwell or Covey, so perhaps these may help you.

C.S.Simon Consulting recognize the challenges to get everyone on your team to contribute to a common goal.   Focus, Execution, Planning, Communication, Prioritizing and Mental toughness are skills your people may need developed to achieve the goals.   Developing individual leaders with in your staff is an investment in your business and doesn’t need to be costly.

Consultants Tip –  I challenge you give on the spot feedback to someone demonstrating leadership by an action or behavior.
Few things are as appreciated as recognition & a “high five.”

Management has a tendency to focus on people’s errors.  While that is needed, it is also to spend dedicated time of finding an employee do something right.  Many explain they don’t have time to do that.  Positive reinforcement reduces turnover and decreases productivity lost during recruiting and onboarding.  From a financial perspective you are much better off developing a culture of Leadership in your staff (who then train other staff) then having a “revolving door” policy.  Wouldn’t we all like to have a Tom Brady on our staff? Where would Tom be without his coaches?

         Carpe diem!
