How to be an Uncommon Competitor | Scott Savor

Leadership development is the name of the game in this day and age. While there are many followers out there, there’s a dearth of driven and successful leaders. This week, we hear from performance coach and keynote speaker Scott Savor about getting on the path to leadership in your own life.

Whether you’re an athlete or part of a company, or just an individual seeking to better yourself this year, there are some practical steps you can take to develop your own leadership qualities. Learning and studying are important for personal development, but at the end of the day, it’s the action you take that will get you there. Playing it safe keeps you where you are. Being intentional about building critical skills and practicing healthy habits will move you ahead to where you need to be.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Build evergreen skill sets
  • Be self-directed and self-motivated
  • Practice daily gratitude
  • Develop intentional habits
  • Take action rather than playing it safe


“If you define someone as a leader, it doesn’t mean you tell them what to do and they do it. That’s a great follower. That’s not leadership. Leadership is being independent. It’s not having to be reminded. It has nothing to do with perfection, but it’s being self-directed.” -Scott Savor

“If you’re an entrepreneur or if you’re trying to find your purpose, it takes a while and you have to spend a lot of intentional thought and you have to ask questions you’ve never asked before and eliminate possibilities in order to really drill down into clarity in that space.” -Scott Savor

“It’s very, very clear to me that everyone has the exact same human value. You’re working with a human being who just happens to play football or a human being who just happens to be CEO of a company.” -Scott Savor

“Instead of desperation, it can be a form of determination that forces you to take action.” -Scott Savor

“Where there’s no gratitude, there’s no joy.” -Scott Savor
