Pat Summitt

Pat Summitt a true visionary and pioneer of the game. Here is an excerpt of her thoughts from the book The Ultimate Coaches Clinic. People will perform so much better if they understand their specific role and what is expected of them. It’s like the potluck dinner: It doesn’t work if it’s disorganized and unclear. If people don’t know what they’re supposed to bring, you don’t get a good dinner. Some people bring too much, others bring nothing at all. This is a great example on showing the importance of pointing out everyone’s role in an organization. In basketball there is only one basketball so it’s important to identify your scorers, defenders, three point shooters, rebounders, glue guys, and leaders. In order to succeed I think that it’s important for every member of the team to know their role.
