Here are some leadership tips from our very own CEO, Carl Daikeler.
Leadership is not easily defined. That’s probably because being a leader is about action more than it is about checking off a series of boxes on a “To Do” list. Being a leader takes vision and it takes passion.
Carl is a consummate leader. Not because he throws out a lot of fancy phrases, wears a $5,000 suit, or drives a luxury car. Carl is a leader because he takes action and because he is relentless in the pursuit of his goals. He opened the Game Plan Event with his definition of leadership, which I thought I would share with you all.
Carl’s Daikeler’s 10 Core Commitments (AKA The Daikeler Theory):
- Have a specific goal. (Carl’s is to have 1,000,000 coaches helping 100,000,000 customers.)
- Constantly search for specific actions that are proven to lead to the accomplishment of that goal.
- Only focus on actions that can be repeated and scaled.
- Build the largest team to execute these steps.
- Never stop learning.
- Never give up.
I believe that Carl’s success, and the success of Team Beachbody, is rooted in these very principles.
The Daikeler Theory is about taking the time to understand what you are trying to accomplish and then keeping your eyes on that prize. People like Carl do the first things first and the second things never. If it doesn’t lead to your specific goal, then it is a distraction and a waste of time. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t spend time with your kids, watch a football game, exercise, or just chat with friends. That is to say that when it is time to work, it is time to WORK.
The parallels between fitness and the Beachbody coaching business never cease to amaze me.
Could you apply The Daikeler Theory to fitness? Think about it for a second—if you had a specific fitness goal and you constantly searched for specific actions that lead to that goal, wouldn’t your fitness improve?
If you focused on specific actions that were easily repeated and could be done by larger groups of people and then you found or formed that larger group of people to nourish your collective fitness, wouldn’t your fitness (and your odds of maintaining it) be better?
If you never stopped learning about fitness, and particularly about nutrition, and you never gave up on your specific fitness goal, wouldn’t your entire life be better?
You see, leadership starts within. That’s because it is about what you have done, not what you are going to do. Take control of your fitness and you take control of your life. Take control of your life and you will become the leader you want to be.
We are all so fortunate to be a part of the Beachbody coaching community and to have the opportunity to help others achieve their fitness and financial goals.
