Chapter 28Pat Summitt

Steely Eyes, Servant Heart

TAMIKA CATCHINGS

I have never met Tamika Catchings but I followed her when she played for Pat Summitt at the University of Tennessee. Pat and I were speakers on a number of programs together and we came to admire each other’s servant leadership philosophies. Some think servant leadership is soft management, but as Tamika will share with you, that doesn’t describe the way Pat Summitt served and motivated her players. She was a fierce competitor but her players always came first. When she passed away, the world lost a great person and a great coach—but Pat Summitt’s legacy as a great servant leadership role model lives on through people who learned from her and loved her—people like Tamika. —KB
