Last week we hosted Tony Dungy former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and JB James Brown, host of CBS Sports’ The NFL Today, for a CIA Speaker Series event at our Headquarters in Langley, VA. The CIA Speaker Series was established in 2014 to provide CIA officers with the opportunity to hear leadership insights from private industry and national security though leaders.

During their visit to the Agency, Coach Dungy and JB met with officers from CIA’s Talent Center to discuss opportunities and challenges related to diversity and inclusion, as well as how to dispel common misperceptions about CIA to potential candidates.

Later that afternoon, JB interviewed Coach Dungy about his philosophy on leadership, team building, dealing with setbacks, and living an “uncommon” life.

As they began the discussion, both JB and Coach Dungy acknowledged the work of the CIA officers and highlighted how much they had learned through their time at CIA.

“My eyes have been opened today,” Coach Dungy said. “Both James and I have a great deal more sensitivity—and frankly—just a sense of gratitude for what you do for our country.”

Coach Dungy discussed the lessons he learned from the most influential people in his life, including his parents, who were educators.

“My father taught me that the most important quality in a leader is humility,” Coach Dungy shared.

Coach Dungy also reflected on his time with Chuck Noll and the Pittsburgh Steelers—where Dungy played for two years and later served as an assistant coach—and the impact Noll made on his life.

When asked what lesson has guided him through his life, Coach Dungy remarked, “If you really want to do something good, do something that helps others. Don’t look for sympathy. Look for what you can do to make the situation better. To be good at what you do, you have to be able to reach everyone.”
