Saw an interesting profile on Bob Knight and Bill Parcells on ESPN. Talking about their respective sports, teamwork and leadership. The number one component that seemed to be talked about was trust, and their players trusting them and knowing that they had their best interests in mind. Tony LaRussa was also part of the special segment and he mentioned that players want coaches who respect them and value a friendship/relationship built on trust. So would you rather have a coach you trust, or a coach who is great at X's and O's but nobody likes and respects? Trust wins hands down every time.
