This is Part III of a series of clinic notes. During the past 6 months I have had the opportunity to attend 37 zoom clinics. It has been an outstanding opportunity of growth for me -- learning and listening to coaches I great respect and many I had not gotten the opportunity to hear and what I'm doing over the next few days is to share a few quick hitters.
Buzz Williams: "Our team of coaches is the example of being a great teammate for our teams."
Chris Beard: Adapt to technology — big in sending clips to players on their phone.
Mike Neighbors' recommendations:
Podcasts: Michael Lewis — “Against the Rules”
Book: “Thinking In Bets” — Annie Duke
Eric Musselman: Worked for Chuck Daly who referred to everything as a meeting.
A timeout was a meeting
Pre game was a meeting
Halftime was a meeting
Post game was a meeting
You have to be prepared for meetings
Frank Martin: Our cornerstones:
Need love to withstand the storms.
Kevin Eastman: Control what you can control
System you employ
Players you choose
Example you set
Preparation you put in
Mike Lombardi: Must have a leader regardless of skill set
Management of attention
Command of process
Command of self
Management of trust
Tim Kight on discipline:
Discipline means "learning" not punishment" -- it's a learned skill
Disciplined is not something done to you but chosen by you to do.
If you chose not to have a disciplined life, you will live by default.
Observations by Mike Lombardi:
1. Peyton Manning had an elite level of preparation — great note taker...would come to QB meeting on Tuesday and have 16-30 pages of notes from the game film he took himself before meeting with staff.
2. Watched Tom Brady in Patriots meeting room — 2nd row...complete eye contact...at practice by himself working on nothing but footwork.
3. Wade/LeBron working out together — level of work….level of detail in stretching.
Tom Cream: "Somebody’s greatness may be somebody else’s good."
