You haven't taught until they have learned                    Keep your emotions under control at all times if you expect your team to maintain emotional control                    Others too have brains                    Be eager not just willing to sacrifice personal glory for the good of the team                    It is much more productive to get others to think than tell them what to think                    God opposes the proud but gives grace and exults the humble                    Everyone is a teacher to someone

Denise Louie Education Center

Seattle Washington


Sixty-five team members, coaches and leaders came together at the Northwest African Museum for a John R. Wooden Course team development experience. Lead by Course founder and creator Lynn Guerin. The session focused on important ways to grow and improve as a team dedicated to providing high quality multi-cultural early learning and family support services helping Seattle kids to be ready for success in school and in life.

Team members came prepared through their pre-reading of Wooden-A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections. Each team member identified principles and Maxims from the book most applicable to their own personal improvement and to the improvement of team culture.

Key behaviors from the Pyramid of Success were learned and discussed. Team members who most exemplified those characteristics were identified, appreciated, and celebrated.

The results of the recent Team Success Assessment were reviewed with the group. Team culture strengths and opportunities for improvements were identified and action items defined for future efforts.

The team brought great fun and energy to" Team Spirit and Positive Attitude", exercises. They also did a great job defining a DLEC "teachable point of view", on team PRIDE-identifying the core elements of:

  • Professionalism and Purpose
  • Reliability and Resilience
  • Integrity and Introspection
  • Deference and Determination
  • Enthusiasm and Excellence

The team will be continuing their Team Development-Wooden Way experience with a session December 1.
