QUOTES FROM COACHES

QUOTES FROM COACHES that I got from John Maxwell’s newsletter

“Teamwork is what makes common people capable of uncommon results.”

~ Pat Summitt

“It is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.”

~ John Wooden

“Every leader needs to remember that a healthy respect for authority takes time to develop. It’s like building trust. You don’t instantly have trust, it has to be earned.”

~ Mike Krzyzewski

“Appreciation is the currency of success.”

~ Shaka Smart (a favorite quote he attributes to his wife, Maya)

“If you’re going to make every game a matter of life or death, you’re going to have a lot of problems. For one thing, you’ll be dead a lot.”

~ Dean Smith

LEADING UP

When we are debating an issue, loyalty means giving me your honest opinion, whether you think I’ll like it or not. Disagreement, at this stage, stimulates me. But once a decision has been made, the debate ends. From that point on, loyalty means executing the decision as if it were your own.”

~ General Colin Powell

“Very few big executives want to be surrounded by ‘yes’ men. Their greatest weakness often is the fact that ‘yes’ men build up around the executive a wall of fiction, when what the executive wants most of all is plain facts.”

~ Burton Bigelow
