I’d like to share some things I learned that weekend. It made me a better leader. I’m hoping it will do the same for you.

Knowing that I am a huge Denver Broncos fan, my friend Clyde Christensen – Quarterbacks Coach for the Indianapolis Colts, invited me to attend Peyton Manning’s first game back in Indy.

I stayed with Clyde and his family, did the chapel for the Colts players and coaches, and sat in the family section for the game. The only stipulation was that I couldn’t wear orange and cheer too loudly for the opposing team.

Actually, I behaved myself quite well.

And I became a Colts fan along the way.

Surely you can cheer for more than one team, can’t you? Honestly, I always have. My two favorite teams were the Broncos and whoever was playing the Raiders. Now I have three favorites 🙂

I didn’t become a Colts fan because of the way they held serve and beat the Broncos on that October Sunday night. Hardly. In my heart of hearts I was pulling for orange, even though I was wearing blue.

My new found allegiance was fueled more by what I saw off the field than on. I was given a peek behind the curtain and I liked what I saw.

I’d like to share some things I learned that weekend. It made me a better leader. I’m hoping it will do the same for you.
