“There are five fundamental qualities that make every team great: communication, trust, collective responsibility, caring, and pride. I like to think of each as a separate finder on the fist. Any one individually is important. But all of them together are unbeatable.” – Coach K.
Don’t look for the big, quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That’s the only way it happens — and when it happens, it lasts. The importance of reputation until automaticity cannot be overstated. John Wooden
“One of my goals in establishing teamwork is always to get the team believing that they are part of something bigger than themselves.” – Coach K.
“If you’re always striving to achieve success that is defined by someone else, you’ll always be frustrated. Define your own success.” Coach K.
“What made (John) Wooden a great coach wasn’t praise, wasn’t denunciation, and certainly wasn’t pep talks. His skill resided in the Gatling-gun rattle of targeted information he fired at his players. This, not that. Here, not there.“
“Never let a person’s weakness get in the way of his strength.” – Coach K
“If you are going to have a great team, there should be no excuses and no finger-pointing when somebody else on your team is not perfect.” – Coach K.
