The 5 Pillars of Pop

Linked below is a good read from Bloomberg Businessweek. The article’s premise is to break down Gregg Popovich’s philosophy and express it in a way business leaders could learn from. They narrow Pop’s management and leadership ideas to 5 pillars. While the thought is a bit simplistic, I think there are some really good takeaways for coaches/leaders at all levels. My favorite point was Pillar 3 about Pop’s ability to unleash his anger strategically. I appreciate Jay Cyriac for passing this article along.

Pillar 1: Own Your Luck
Pillar 2: Do Your Work
Pillar 3: Unleash Your Anger (Strategically)
Pillar 4: Widen Your World
Pillar 5: Know Your People
