It was created for the purpose of providing a preoccupation to a group of youth that could be played indoors and serve as an "athletic distraction".
When Naismith developed the game, it originally had 13 rules however, as the "athletic distraction" evolved, the tattered peach basket was replaced with an orange rim and the rule book that contained the13 rules grew as thick as an old Yellow Pages phone book.
In keeping with the spirit of the game’s origin (13 original rules), I thought it fitting to share 13 Specatcular Hard Court Leadership Lessons with you in the coming weeks starting with this post.
These lessons are meant to increase your awareness and broaden your understanding of what the act of leadership is all about.
The hope is that you'll see beyond the basketball references and look to see how these lessons can be practically applied in your own life.
My desire is that they'll serve as the foundation to help you become a more reliable and effective leader and move you from the bench into the starting line-up!
I'd appreciate it if you took the time to comment, feedback is both welcomed and encouraged.
