A Commitment-Based Culture
There are two types of organizations: Behavior-Based or Commitment-based.
During our observations of the Point Guard College (PGC Basketball), we took note of their commitment-based culture.
For any who are looking for the best training available, we fully endorse PGC Basketball. It is truly transformative. From our time there, we adopted a similar approach. It is only appropriate that we give PGC the credit it deserves for helping not only to SCHAPE the basketball world, but for also helping to SCHAPE Hoops 101’s approach to teaching the game.
While goals are based on what you desire to achieve, commitment statements are based on who you need to be in order to be successful in your position. At Hoops 101, every full-time staff member creates his or her own personalized commitment statement. You can view those on our Meet Our Coaches page.
The Talent Code
One of the best books a coach and teacher (and parent) can read is The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle. In this book, Coyle builds the case that talent is not accidental and that it can be cultivated. He used evidence, research and visit to many of the world’s hotbed of teaching or producing dynamic talent, and he found some things in place in each of these great Houses of Learning.
Here is an Example of How Talent is Built from The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle
