We all know Phil Jackson as the only NBA coach who has earned and own 11 championship rings in his career. Jackson has coached many of the greats such as Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Kobe Bryant along with many more.
This book Eleven Rings goes into grave detail on how he has gained so much success in his career as a coach.
An online source wrote ” An advance copy of Eleven Rings reveals some new information such as Jackson telling his Lakers during the 2011 NBA playoffs that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and his further struggle with Kobe Bryant’s 2003 sexual assault charge because Jackson’s daughter Brooke, while in college, was the victim of an assault while on a date with a campus athlete.But the gist of the book is teaching how to get more out of those around you and the experiences you share with them. He tells you at different times to see beyond what is seen and to hear the unheard, which seems impossible, but is how Jackson has known what to do or say en route to those 11 NBA championships.”
This book seems to touch upon unique topics that we don’t hear about from a coach. Sort of like a manual on how to become a great coach in handling situations.
Jackson wrote in his book, “What I’ve learned over the years is that the most effective approach is to delegate authority as much as possible and to nurture everyone else’s leadership skills as well. When I’m able to do that, it not only builds team unity and allows others to grow but also, paradoxically, strengthens my role as leader.”
Jackson’s book is now available online as well in stores.
