Leadership – John Wooden, Coach, Leader, Mentor.

Wanted to post John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success. John Wooden was a great basketball coach because he was such a great leader. While I respect his ability as a coach and all his accomplishment, he was probably the best coach of all time, I admire him as a man, husband, and leader. Here is line from Wikipedia, about his devotion to his wife Nellie.

For a great article about a Wooden principle go to Leadership Guru, Mentor, Coach, ORRIN WOODWARD’S post.  John Wooden’s Attitude – Set of Three

Wooden remained devoted to Nellie, even decades after her death, until Wooden’s own death. Since her death, he kept to a monthly ritual (health permitting)—on the 21st, he visited her grave, and then wrote a love letter to her. After completing the letter, he placed it in an envelope and added it to a stack of similar letters that accumulated over the years on the pillow she slept on during their life together.
