FOLLOW THE LEADER

IN THE UNITED STATES we are in the midst of baseball pennant races and preseason football, and the big question is which coach or manager will make the difference for his team? Perhaps one of the most impressive coaching records was set earlier this summer when Phil Jackson of the Los Angeles Lakers won his tenth National Basketball Association championship, displaying extraordinary leadership qualities. While he has coached such great players as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, Jackson is still credited with being able to get the most from a disparate group of players and really develop talent.
