9 Leadership Lessons from the Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Run

9 Leadership Lessons I Learned from the Pittsburgh Penguin's Epic Stanley Cup Run

Laura and I love watching the Pittsburgh Penguins play! We watched the majority of the games the second half of the season and watched all but one of the playoff games. What a journey!

However, I remember the first few months of the season, I lost interest in watching the Pens. They were not fun to watch and it did not seem like they were going to do anything significant this season. Then they hired Mike Sullivan and in just a few months they were hoisting the Stanley Cup! How did that happen? Leadership!

Today I just want to share a few leadership insights that I noticed in the second half of the Penguins season. Here they are:

1.) Leadership Matters – The Penguins had two coaches this season. One coach had them headed for disaster and the other was able to help them win a Stanley Cup. John Maxwell often says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” You can’t look at what happened to the Pens this season and not believe that leadership matters.

  • Takeaway: How you lead matters. 

So,what did Mike Sullivan do to lead his team to the cup? Let’s review:

2.) He got Buy-In from his Leaders – When Mike Sullivan got here, he spent a ton of time meeting with the leaders of the team one on one. He built trust with them, gave them a vision for what could be, and set the expectations he had for them as leaders on the team.

  • Takeaway: Are you building influence and trust with your key leaders? Are you setting the bar for them?
