Chicago Authors Program

Fri, 24 May, 2013 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Chicago Authors Program: Phil Jackson

In collaboration with the Union League Club of Chicago, Marquette alumni are invited to attend the Authors Group program and luncheon. These programs enable Marquette alumni to network with other Chicago club and civic institution members and gain a better understanding of world affairs, learn about historical events and be inspired to reach your full potential.  

Join us at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday, May 24 for a noon luncheon and program that will feature Phil Jackson discussing his new book, Eleven Rings, The Soul of Success.  (Books will be available for signing and purchase at the event).

During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. Even more important, he succeeded in never wavering from coaching his way, from a place of deep values. Jackson was tagged as the “Zen master” half in jest by sportswriters, but the nickname speaks to an important truth: this is a coach who inspired, not goaded; who led by awakening and challenging the better angels of his players’ nature, not their egos, fear, or greed.

This is the story of a preacher’s kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. In his quest to reinvent himself, Jackson explored everything from humanistic psychology and Native American philosophy to Zen meditation. In the process, he developed a new approach to leadership based on freedom, authenticity, and selfless teamwork that turned the hypercompetitive world of professional sports on its head.
