Lombardi Rules




Without a doubt Vince Lombardi was a larger than life figure. As head coach of the Green Bay Packers Football Team from 1959 to 1967 he led the Packers to 6 NFL Championships and victories in the first two Super Bowls. He knew how to lead and motivate and love his players.


The book above is designed to enhance employee performance. And I’m sure that folks to use it as such have success with the principles and rules described in it.


As a business owner, here are a few of Lombardi’s Rules I hope you will consider.

1. Ask yourself tough questions.

2. Look the truth straight on.

​3. Play to your strengths.

4. Write your character.

5. Think big picture.

6. Be completely committed.

7. Work harder than anyone else.

8. Be prepared to sacrifice.


In truth, you probably already do a lot if not all of these things. The list just acts as reinforcement. And these are only 8 of the 26 lessons from Vince. The rest are in the book.
