Reflections from the Frontline Reflection:  #11 – Do You Really Want to Win?

Synopsis: Dr. Duncan discusses the experience of driving to win.  Even in the classroom, the teachers need to have a concept of winning in order to obtain success and results.  But doing what it takes to win (hard work, effort, extra time studying, etc) the teachers were able to improve the performance of their students.  Have this mentality would perpetuate throughout the classroom.


Leaders need to have the same mentality.  You drive to win. To quote Herman Edwards, former coach of the New York Jets, “YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!”  It does not matter your environment or situation, you strive to do the best you can, get the best from your people, get the best from your family.  Through encouragement and demonstration you can uplift your team to have a mentality of leaders.

Have the purpose to create winners.  Do not be satisfied with performing good, but finishing second.  Shawn Carter and Kanye West said, “Second Place is just the first loser.”  Do not settle for less than the best.  Once you as a leader develop a winning attitude, it will be very influential to the rest of your teams.

Do you have a winning mentality?  How did you spread it through your team?

Dr. Sabin Duncan is the Associate Director of the William R. Harvey Leadership Institute & the Honors College at Hampton University.  He is the author of “Reflections of the Frontline” – a memoir of his experience as an educator.
