Popular NFL coach inspires local leaders

By Laura Ann Sills - email

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Retired Coach of the Indianapolis Colts, Tony Dungy, says he has had the fortune of being with good teams, making it easy to lead. But, that's not all that counts, "Even more than teamwork, there is that ultimate goal that all of us can strive for. At a time when I might want to give up, be a little discouraged, I know I have got everyone else counting on me."

Dungy, along with several other highly acclaimed leaders spoke at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast.

Sacrifice and service was the theme of today's event. Columbus Young Professionals hosted a simulcast of the actual event going on in Atlanta.

Colby Cardin works at CB&T and is highly involved in the Young Professionals, he said, "We have such a rich culture of leadership.  If you really look at the large corporations in town, they are led by people who want their people to grow and develop."

Cardin said it is this culture of businesses in town that sold out the event in just days.

Anthony Berger bought tickets for his whole staff, "It comes down to inspiring your staff.  The people that work for you drive your mission. Every day is what makes the difference and so anytime you can inspire them, they can increase their talents."

Kat Cannella told News Leader Nine there was so much that she learned at today's event that she could take back to her job as Columbus State University's Continuing Education Executive Director.  To sum it all up she explained, "Building the right team, making sure you have got the right folks doing what they do best."

May 6th, 2011 is the date for next year's Leadercast.  Click here for more information about the Leadercast event.
