Coach Jim Johnson developed winning high-school basketball teams for 30 years, taking over three losing varsity programs and turning them into winners in short periods of time. Of his 428 career victories, one in particular will surely never be duplicated. On February 15, 2006, Coach Johnson made the kind-hearted gesture of inserting his autistic manager, Jason McElwain, now known to the world as J-Mac, into Greece Athena High School’s final home game, which the Trojans won 79-43. J-Mac scored 20 points in just over four minutes, including six three-point baskets, to become an instant national celebrity. Since that night in February, Coach Johnson has made a number of radio and television appearances, including the Oprah Winfrey and Jim Rome shows to tell this incredible story. Coach Johnson has retired from teaching and is now a professional speaker focusing on teamwork, goal setting leading by example.
Jim studies success and leadership -- you have to make life a study. ONWARD!
Have a specific morning routine -- Jim starts his day off with a nutritious breakfast and then takes the time to pray, writes down his 17 goals, reads, exercises, and listens to educational and inspirational audio.
Jim had anarchy amongst the parents of his basketball team -- and Jim tells the whole story here.
"Know what you're all about -- and master the art of sales."
"You have to live your life with integrity."
I would have had systems for leading to new opportunities following speaking engagements.
Be clear on your mission and vision -- and then attract those are passionate about your vision.
An individual would believe in the same values that you do.
