As I watched the NCAA Basketball Tournament over the weekend CBS continually showed snippets of coaches in the locker room's giving speeches to their players. I thought to myself - WOW - this is one of the highest degrees of emotional displays you're ever going to see. A leader trying to motivate his men in a complete "do or die" situation.
So in honor of March Madness this is a compilation of great quotes by equally great NCAA basketball coaches. Boost your morale to start the week with this list of 19 motivational quotes provided by Cecilia Meis, SUCCESS.com.
“Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.” - John Wooden
**Wooden's work is timeless and I highly suggest reading any of his books on leadership.
