Jim Thompson of the Positive Coaching Alliance tells it like it is: "Watching the Lakers win the NBA title, last night I began to count the ways that Phil Jackson is a model for youth coaches."
For all of you who believe a good coach must be loud and directive during games, please read how Phil Jackson coaches. He is an excellent professional coach yet is calm and quiet during games. While adult professionals enjoy this, it is even more important for our kids -- who are still in the process of building their self esteem.
Please read Jim's article at http://www.positivecoach.org/Blog.aspx?id=3892 and let me know what you think.
