Tom Lewand writing about leadership and great organizations is like Hannibal Lecter writing about vegetarian recipes.
This would be true even if you could understand what he is trying to say, considering all the run-on sentences and generally unclear writing.
Tom is a huge part of a dismal past for the Lions, and William Clay Ford bought his snake oil for way too long a time. All things considered, now is not the time for him to reappear as some sort of organizational guru.
I hear what your saying @59to14. The Lions franchise has stunk for decades and everyone involved deserves a little blame. Tom Lewand included.
Maybe someone can clarify this, but didn’t Tom Lewand play a pioneering role in NFL salary cap management? I’m almost certain he was well respected around the NFL for his prowess with numbers and the salary cap.
George Custer played a pioneering role at Little Big Horn too.
Promoted during Millen, replaced by the family Butler…
Lewand’s DUI arrest didn’t do him any favors when trying to survive the front office housecleaning
Regardless, it was an interesting read regarding emotional intelligence
yeah this team only had 31 freaking head coaches, and he’s preaching ?
CAN YOU NAME HIS 31 HIRES?
I’m going to read this just as soon as I finish the book I’m reading by Matt Patricia on head coaching.
“his” who ? , I am talking throughout Detroit Lion History…The team has had 31 head coaches.
30 head coaches…my bad. dating back to 1930.
I agree, and I thought he had some pretty good insights. He was involved for a long time and saw a lot. Despite how his career with the Lions ended, it sounds like he learned quite a bit.
