5 Leadership Lessons From Jurgen Klopp
Wherever he goes, Klopp shows a 100% commitment. When he was at Mainz 5 he committed to promoting the team to Bundesliga. And he delivered. Same at Dortmund, and now at Liverpool.
He played for Mainz 5 before being manager, but never worked less for other two clubs. That’s what you need to understand as a leader in your business. You have to commit and deliver in any condition. Jurgen committed a trophy in four years at Liverpool and he has now.
If you commit, you have to deliver. If you don’t, you don’t have to. But if you do the first thing, 100% of people under you will get inspire and work more willingly.
Connect With Your Team
Jurgen Klopp was on a mission at Liverpool. Rather he still is. In his first year itself, he said his biggest goal was to change doubters into the believers. Not only the fans were delighted to hear that, but the players got motivated and played their hearts out.
And now after four years, he has achieved his goal partially if not whole.
