Book Signing: Julia Weaver

May 21 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Book Signings at Mercantile HQ

Join us on May 21 from 11am-1pm with Julia Weaver for the signing of her book, Hoopspeak. Come meet Julia and get a copy of her book.

ABOUT HOOPSPEAK

Hoopspeak takes the language of basketball and aligns it with leadership concepts, ideas, examples, and Julia’s interpretation of how leadership and basketball come together.
 
Imagine saying things like…
“I am going to throw a bounce pass to Edwardo today because he needs a layup (quick success).”
“I am calling a timeout because I am sensing that everyone is weary from all the overtime we have put in working on this project.”
“We are so far behind on this initiative; we need to apply a full-court press.”
And…everyone understands! Basketball is a language. Ask any basketball player. Creating a language for things makes it feel more natural. It is the same concept as an inside joke or a silly phrase.
The Xs and the Os are the strategies behind the terminology. Julia wanted to create an all-encompassing language that is simple to read and understand.
