Thought Leader Life 109: Guest Robert Elwood

Our co-host for the month of December is Stacy Feiner (@StacyFeiner) and one of our guests was Robert Elwood (@Sports_and_Mind).


Robert Elwood

In this episode, Mitchell Levy, Chief Instigator of Ahas at the Aha Amplifier (, and his co-host for the month, #ThoughtLeader Dr. Stacy Feiner, Executive Coach for the Middle Market, have an interesting discussion about sports and business with #ThoughtLeader Robert Elwood, COO of The Sports Mind Institute ( Robert defines culture as something that evolves. He surmises that a leader should be able to create a healthy culture by putting a great deal of thought into it. Stacy agrees, noting that there are many opportunities to grow leaders through sports analogies. One life lesson business leaders can learn from Tony Dungy is the mantra he ascribes to his team: “Execution, Expectations, No Excuses, No Explanation.” The point is, every leader should come up with a mantra that reflects the core values of that company, and these should be unequivocal. Stacy emphasizes that core values and unequivocal expectations should be the glue that holds the team together.

The discussion also touches on the relevance of watching tapes of past games, which sports coaches always do. Robert explains that it’s important to watch yourself to see how a certain outcome happened. This will help you reflect on your actions. In business, leaders should try filming themselves to see how they interact with people. Another good leadership practice is keeping a “Decision Diary,” which will help you assess not only the outcome but also the reasons why a certain decision was made at that time.
