Enthusiasm brushes off on those with whom you come into contact.                    Enthusiasm takes work to a more productive level.                    Hard work without enthusiasm leads to tedium.                    Enthusiasm without industriousness leads to unrealized potential.                    Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out.                    A leader generates enthusiasm for the effort ,the team and the process.                   

February is "ENTHUSIASM" Month

The team learned who the people were that most influenced Coach John Wooden in his early life, and the most important lessons they taught him.

They also reviewed, and discussed how to apply the 5 key elements of The Wooden Coaching Model:

  • How you think

The team meets every two weeks for a one hour Zoom Video call lead by Dan Johnson the CEO of DanCo, a highly successful builder and property management firm in Arcata California.

Remarkably most members of this inspiring group have been growing and learning together for over 15 years.

Coach Wooden would applaud that level of teamwork, team spirit, and "consideration for others."
