On this day in leadership history in 1985, Joe Theismann (Washington Redskins) broke his leg after being hit by Lawrence Taylor (New York Giants). The injury ended Theismann’s 12-year National Football League (NFL) career. After his retirement from football, he went on to numerous jobs and business ventures over the last 30 years.
What’s the leadership lesson? When a setback comes or season of life abruptly ends, bounce, back, be resilient, and move forward with courage.
