Leading from the Heart
The Game is Won and Lost in the Heart

PRESENTED BY:

For years experts have extolled the idea that all games are won and lost in one’s mind and that the game of life is the same way. However, my upbringing and my experience as a college basketball coach for over a quarter of a century has taught me that this is not totally accurate. “The game of life is won and lost in the heart.” That’s right. To have any chance of success it must first start in the heart. In 1988 I took the reigns as the head coach of St. Francis College in Brooklyn New York at the age of 27. I was the youngest Division I head coach in the country trying to lead a program that had not had a winning season in over two decades. My first goal was to win the hearts of my players. I knew that the only way to get them to follow was to show them how much I cared as opposed to how much I knew. (Coach Z’s first rule of leadership.) My passion for my players and the program led to a winning season in year three and being named the Northesast Conference Coach of the Year. It also was a testament to the fact that nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm (Thoreau) or more simply put, you can’t heat an oven with snowballs. (Coach Z’s second rule of leadership.) During my career I have rebuilt or built programs at each stop along the journey. I departed two of the four programs that I was head coach at as the winningest coach in school history and in 2005 I became only 1 of 35 active coaches to be named Coach of the Year in two separate Division I conferences at two different schools. That year at UMKC I was named the Mid Continent Conference, CBS Sportsline and College Insider Coach of the Year. These experiences furthered solidified my view that “if a mailman worried about every barking dog, the mail would never get delivered.” (Coach Z’s third rule of leadership.) Currently, I am a television analyst for ESPN and CBS and published author, but what makes this journey most satisfying is the impact on the people around you. If you take the time to “eat the heart of a watermelon” and understand that “if you see a turtle on top of a fencepost, you know he did not get there by himself.” (Coach Z’s fourth rule of leadership.) My mission is to continue to impact people with the positive word. As a speaker my presentations are geared to entertain, educate and empower
