Transformational Basketball

I am a basketball fan, I think it’s a beautiful sport.

Almost a month ago, was in Madison Square Garden to watch the Nicks.
Phil Jackson, who has 11 championship rings as a coach of the Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers, fired his coach of the NY Knicks recently, and said he is looking for a transformational leader rather than a transactional leader. According to Jackson, a transactional leader says, “How do we play better basketball?” and a transformational leader says “How do we become a better team?” Transformational leadership is about building something special and meaningful. To me, it’s getting very close to a purpose leader. No surprise, Jackson admires Martin Luther King, Franklin Roosevelt, and George Patton.
