Records are made to be broken… at least that’s what they say. It’s fun to watch the progression of records in professional sports. From the grainy black and white footage of the early years to the Hall of Fame legends throughout the late 20th century, a record gets passed from one person to the next, with each one seemingly insurmountable. Yet almost always, someone comes along and sets the bar at a new height.
As we saw last season, Peyton Manning surmounted Brett Favre’s record for most touchdown passes thrown in a career. He did it in 56 fewer games and with 1514 fewer passes than Favre (h/t @adamschefter). 509 touchdowns… 111 since he bravely stepped back on the field after the neck injury that most thought would end his career.
Then last night (Sunday, January 24), Manning helped the Broncos beat the New England Patriots, 20-18, throwing two touchdown passes. At 39, Peyton will be the oldest quarterback to start in a Super Bowl. And while many people showered Peyton with accolades following the game, like a true values-based leader, he gave the credit to his teammates. This has always been Peyton’s signature leadership approach, a combination of humility and confidence; an attitude of leadership and team-player.
Leadercast caught up with Peyton last year to learn and share his Leadership Lessons:
Whatever your area of focus may be, you can take some of the insights from Peyton’s career and turn them into action. Be a leader worth following… work hard, learn from those who succeeded before you, and be thankful for the individuals who make your success possible.
