Coach K doesn’t really believe in rules and he isn’t much for setting goals.

Huh? What?731955.0.coachk_featured

Coach K believes in Standards.

Powerful distinction.

Rules confine people and put them in a box. Goals are often out of our direct control.

Standards are an effective way to hold people accountable to the process necessary to achieve success.

I recently received a very thoughtful (and completely unsolicited) email from Matt Schweinberg, an assistant coach at Normal Community High School in Normal, IL. Matt shared his NCHS basketball program’s Iron Standards.

The four areas that NCHS focuses on are humility, listening, serving and working. These four key areas help foster leadership on the team.

BE HUMBLE

Everyone leaves a legacy; what will your legacy be?

LISTEN

Are you listening to what others have to teach you?

SERVE OTHERS

Are others better off because you are here?

WORK HARD

Do others respect the work you do on & off the court?

What standards do you have in your program?
