I played point guard for Coach Bechler and saw how his leadership insights worked first-hand. He helped me understand that my success as a player and our success as a team wasn’t solely dependent upon our talents.

There is no price tag one can place on being a strong leader. As a former collegiate athlete and educator, I understand the importance of transforming one’s potential into a reality. The Leadership Playbook is perfect for doing just that; it inspires and equip young student athletes with the essentials of leadership development and growth while positioning them to lead successful sports careers and lives. I wish I had a book like The Leadership Playbook to read while I was still playing basketball to help cultivate my growth as a leader.

When I played for Coach Bechler, he strongly valued leadership. It is very important at every level and it should be taught daily. The teams most likely to succeed are those that have good leadership skills and everyone is held accountable for their actions. One might think that leadership skills is not necessary when playing on a professional level. However, that's not the case, because we still have to use the leadership skills we were taught because it's our job.  This past year I played in Sweden and my team had never had Americans on their roster and had never been in the playoffs.  But we knew we had to lead the team and bring everyone on board.  Myself and the other American knew that we had to do what we could to unify everyone. We made history at EOS just by leading and holding each other accountable. Leadership will bring success on and off the court so lead wherever you may go because it can be quite contagious!
