Kendrick Daniel Organization & Management January 26, 2009 Coach K and Coach Knight The cases are about two basketball coaches and the strategies they implement for success. The cases illustrate that leadership is something that can take many forms and is often dependent upon the characteristics of an individual. The actions of the coaches have similar results but the ways in which these results are attained are drastically different. The underlying principle of simple and unregulated coaching that relies on emotion and discipline is present in the both of the coaches’ approaches. The ways in which the coaches utilize emotion and implement discipline are where the differences arise. Coach K’s approach is paternalistic because it relies on a certain degree of love and respect. He treats the team as if they are his family and when necessary he is tough on the players. His approach to coaching has an emphasis on close communication with the players.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
