On This Day in Leadership History, November 18th

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.
