Leadership Quote of the Day – Tom Landry

Our leadership quote of the day is by Tom Landry.

Who is Tom Landry?

Thomas Wade Landry (September 11, 1924 – February 12, 2000)

Thomas Wade Landry was an American football player and coach. He is ranked as one of the greatest and most innovative coaches in National Football League (NFL) history, creating many new formations and methods. He invented the now popular 4–3 defense, and the “flex defense” system made famous by the “Doomsday Defense” squads. These he created during his 29-year tenure with the Dallas Cowboys. His 29 consecutive years as the coach of one team are an NFL record, along with his 20 consecutive winning seasons.

Landry won two Super Bowl titles (VI, XII), five NFC titles, 13 Divisional titles, and compiled a 270–178–6 record, the fourth-most wins all-time for an NFL coach. His 20 career playoff victories are the second most of any coach in NFL history. He was named the NFL Coach of the Year in 1966 and the NFC Coach of the Year in 1975. His most impressive professional accomplishment is his 20 consecutive winning seasons (1966–1985). This is still an NFL record.  Source: Wikipedia
