Follow the Leaders
What can you learn about leadership from a 13-year NBA veteran and World Champion coach? Turns out, a lot.
Before we said goodbye to 2017, we said hello to former Boston Celtics and LA Clippers coach Kevin Eastman at our last Quarterly Luncheon of the year. Like our membership, Kevin has a thirst for knowledge – becoming very agitated if he can’t find an entry for his WILT (What I Learned Today) notebook each day.
If you were lucky enough to be at the luncheon, you heard stories about winning championships, managing personalities and, most importantly, what it takes to lead teams to greatness. Simply put, Kevin Eastman’s life is truly a lesson in leadership.
One of the best messages he left us with? “If you fear the consequence of failure, please put equal fear in the consequence of never trying.”
Here are just a few other nuggets he shared with us during his presentation.
