Why You Should Listen?
Greg Brown worked for two of the greatest servant leaders in the history of college basketball, Hall of Famers Pat Summit and Don Meyer. They combined with 2,021 wins and won 84 percent of their games! The priceless gifts that both Pat and Don so selflessly passed to Coach Brown inspired him to “pay it forward” and share the gifts with others in the form of this book “The Best Things I’ve Seen In Coaching”
The title comes from a session of Coach Meyer’s Coaching Academy, which would discuss a very wide variety of topics. The book follows the Cornell note taking system that Coach Meyer emphasized. Coach Meyer always talked about the concept of a “thought pad” and Coach Brown wanted the ideas from the book to lead to more ideas and thoughts and plans of action.
After 19 years of coaching the college and high school level, Coach Brown was named the fourth head coach in the history of Lipscomb women’s basketball team in May of 2012.
In this Jim Huber Podcast, Coach Brown goes over the “1 Minute Assessment” that will help you communicate effectively with your student-athletes, 5 ways that Coach Meyer and Coach Summitt maintained success, getting maximum effort at your practices, and much more…
