Coach’s Coach with Jim Burson
Coach Burson’s interview was a real booster shot for me as I build my podcasts and website. We covered many topics, including these 4:
1. What makes for good coaching or teaching practice. 2. Types of athletes and students we coach and what our endgame should look like. 3. What we teach and can learn from our experience. 4. What participation in sports can teach us and its value in school.

About the interview: For my second podcast, I had the tremendous good fortune to talk to legendary basketball coach Jim Burson … The Golden Whistle is one of the best leadership books I have ever read, period (and I have read many, many books.) This book has nuggets that span far beyond basketball to help you live a life of purpose and service. As you listen to the show, you will get a kick out of Dr. Burson’s stories and be inspired by the lives that touched him and the lives he touched. Thank you for listening, you will enjoy the journey Dr. Burson takes you on. (:90)
