101 Leadership Lessons From Basketball’s Greatest Coaches

( 0 Reviews )

Basketball hasn’t changed so much throughout the years that advice from the early 20th century can’t be applied to situations and players in 2016—and beyond.

Thus, 101 Leadership Lessons From Basketball’s Greatest Coaches includes an extensive mix of coaches from different professional leagues—including the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the American Basketball Association (ABA)— and from different college levels as well as some high school coaches.

What makes this book unique is the inclusion of some of the most successful female coaches—a testament to how diverse coaching has become in the last 30 years. Because these coaches—male and female—come from many different eras and have vastly different temperaments and attitudes about coaching, you might find conflicting approaches, but you should also find plenty of agreement—even on the most peculiar aspects—and you’ll certainly come across some funny coaches who have enlivened basketball and its many players, teams, and fans.

Indeed, you might find Leadership Lessons that seem to contrast with each other, but the general concept is to offer you—the basketball coach and/or the workplace manager or supervisor—enough different options, opinions, and ideas to help you pick and choose those that best suit your personality and your style as well as the environment in which you work. Life and basketball are all about perspective, but as you’ll also find as you read this book, life and basketball are about passing along life lessons and especially about having fun. This book can help you, your team, your players, your workers, your fans, your employers, and even your families reach goals and reach dreams.
