I’m Michael Elkins, your host, labor and employment attorney, founder of the law firm MLE Law, investor and this is an all new episode of Game 7: The Sports Business & Lifestyle Podcast.
On today’s show I sit down with Arkansas Razorbacks Head Coach, Eric Musselman. Coach Musselman is a thirty-year coaching veteran who, prior to coaching in the NCAA, spent time as the head coach of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings. Coach Musselman brings energy, passion and raw emotion as he takes us inside his journey from the minor leagues, to the NBA, to the head coach of a Power 5 Conference program.
Some of the things we talk about:
The anatomy of building a staff – which applies to business as well as sports;
Innovation – The desire and necessity of exploring new ideas both on and off the basketball court;
Empowerment – Taking input from those around you, which builds trust;
Leadership – How learning about different topics outside of basketball translates to being a better coach and better human being; and
Dealing with adversity in both the public and private domains.
I think you’re all going to really enjoy this episode, I know that I was blown away by Coach’s candor, emotional EQ, and sheer excitement for growth and learning. So, without further-adieu, I give you Razorbacks’ head coach, Eric Musselman.
Enjoy the show!
