Are you familiar with MasterClass? The online learning platform has become a go-to source to instruct folks on various things such as how to negotiate, shoot a basketball and make a perfect cocktail.
The recently published MasterClass course is from the winningest men’s basketball coach ever, Mike Krzyzewski. The highly decorated and praised Duke University coach offers beneficial pointers on what he describes as “Values-Driven Leadership.”
Specifically, Coach K teaches viewers how to motivate a team and how to “discover your innate leadership skills with drills to prepare for success.” The 12X Coach of the Year details the following five core values of leadership:
- Collective Responsibility
Now, we’ll refrain from providing any more detail as to not infringe on the incredible sage wisdom from the MasterClass course. However, we would like to underscore the #1 ranked value…COMMUNICATION.
Coach K purposefully names communication the first trait as communication matters most in how you obtain trust, care, take responsibility and harness pride. Without communication, the other values don’t stand a chance and a leader’s respect and reputation will falter.
We applaud this recognition by Coach Krzyzewski, as it underscores what ReputationUs advocates consistently…communication is the key driver to enhance, advance and protect your valuable reputation. Either as a leader, company or person, having strong, clear, consistent communication will ultimately solidify your place in the environment leading. There’s no escaping communication, and we appreciate one of the best leaders in sports history making communication a top priority.
