The Law of Countability


Significance Begins HERE

Your teammates must be able to count on each other when it counts!

The Law of Countability is clearest when the stakes are at their highest. The mantra of every team should be, “We do not work for each other, we work with each other!” This statement embodies the ability and desire for your team – church – pastoral staff – church board to work toward common goals.

The formula for countability is not rocket science but it is impactful and powerful. Here it is: Character + Competence = Commitment = Consistency = Cohesion = Countability.

Lou Holtz’s 12 Covenants

1.We will accomplish what we do together. We share our success and we never let anyone fail alone.

2.We are all fully grown adults. We will act as such and expect the same from the people around us.

3.We will not keep secrets. Information that affects us all will be shared by all, we will quickly separate fact from fiction

4.We will not lie to ourselves or to each other. We will depend on each other for the truth.

5.We will keep our word. We will say what we mean, and do what we say. We trust the word of others to be good as well.

6.We will keep our head. We will not panic in the face of tough times. We will always choose to roll up our sleeves instead of ringing our hands.

7.We will develop our abilities and take pride in them. We will set our standards higher than the most challenging opponent.

8.We will treat our locker room like home and our teammates like friends.

9.We will be unselfish and expect the same from everyone around us on our team. We will care for each without expectations.

10.We will look our for each other. We truly believe that we are our brothers keeper.

11.We are students of life first and we will complete what we set out to do and expect that others will do the same.

12.Losing cannot and will not be tolerated in anything we do – there is no excuse for losing!
