7 Leadership Lessons From Basketball Champion Mark Edwards


(With Mark Edwards at WUSTL, 2018)

Mark Edwards established the Washington University in St. Louis men’s basketball team as a perennial national power.

In my leadership conversation with Coach Edwards, he shared 7 keys to creating champions on and off the court:

1.   Have a curious mind.

2.   Never have a goal without a process.

3.   Make consistency your focus.

4.   The coach is the leader, but not the only leader.

5.   Identify and nurture “Command Presence.”

6.   Earn what you get.

7.   Open a new set of motivators.
