A funny thing happened in a conversation about how LeBron James interacts with his teammates as a leader, he compared it to fatherhood. Interesting … #FatherhoodFriday Life raising three kids and teammates. #DadsRule
“There’s no encyclopedia or book about parenthood. You learn on the fly. And, as a parent, if you have multiple kids, you can’t teach them all the same thing because they all have different personalities. They’re their own person. And I understand that. The way I can talk to one of my kids has to be different from the other one, because how they react and how they take in the knowledge is different.
And what’s funny is it’s a lot like being a leader of a basketball team. How I speak to Dwayne Wade is different from how I speak to Chris Bosh. How I speak to Mario Chalmers is different from how I talk to Norris Cole. How I talk to Kyrie Irving is different from how I talk to Kevin Love. It’s how they receive the knowledge and how it processes into their mind—that’s how you know you’re doing it the right way. Being able to understand their personalities, and understand their mind, on how they take the knowledge.” – LeBron James
