Great article in ESPN.com about Lance Armstrong and his leadership development over the years. Armstrong is a rare leader in sports that can recruit top talent, motivate and get the most out of his team, demand loyalty and respect, innovate in technology and technique, and lead by example and hard work. Those that have followed Lance in his early career know he was not a born leader but a brash, physical phenomenon. The excellent article is written by his longtime coach Chris Carmichael. Another argument for leadership by training and hard work…not birth!
