Do you leverage your strengths to win the game of life? 

Published on February 15, 2024

This past Sunday, we had a great Super Bowl with an overtime win—the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Both teams had two different styles of quarterbacks.

One of the reasons both teams made it to the Super Bowl was because their head coaches leveraged each quarterback’s strengths.

Coach Andy Reid, with the Chiefs, leveraged Patrick Mahomes’ three strengths. Mahomes has an excellent arm strength and accuracy. The accuracy is how far he could throw the ball. He also has the athleticism and mobility to run around and use the whole football field. He has improvisational skills to get him out of any jam.

Conversely, Brock Purdy is known as Mr. Irrelevant because he was the last pick in the NFL draft 2022. Well, his coach, Kyle Shanahan, played to his strengths. His strengths are his football IQ and ability to make the right decisions as he sizes up the field. He also has accuracy, but it differs from how far he throws it. It’s in the timing of his throws. Finally, he has pocket presence and manipulation, meaning he doesn’t use the whole field like Mahomes in the running around; he will use the pocket, and will look at all his options. He’ll pick the right one and hit it on the nail.

The question I have for you today is simple: If you want more Velocity in your organization or life, are you playing to your strengths?
