Kudos and Gaffes: Teamwork is superior to individual

Leadership Kudos of the Week go to Lionel Messi and his teammates at Barcelona for demonstrating that teamwork is superior to individual, as they won the Champion’s Cup as the world’s top professional team with skillful passing, patience, and intensity. With Iniesta, Xavi, Messi, Villa, Pedro and so many brilliant players, Barca has become the best team of all time. Every aspiring soccer player should study the tapes of this game and then learn how to do it.

Leadership Gaffes of the Week go to John Edwards for allegedly using funds given to him to run for President to cover up his affair as his wife Elizabeth was dying with cancer. It doesn’t get any worse than this. What if we had elected this man President?
