Even after almost four decades of enormous success as a college basketball coach, Coach K is still adapting. After a first-round NCAA tournament loss in 2014, Coach K was faced with decisions over the coming year of how to adapt his program and his own leadership approach to make sure their first-round defeat didn't happen again. His decisions ultimately led the Duke program to yet another NCAA Championship just one year after the first-round loss.

Through this course, you'll learn about the decisions Coach K faced and how he adapted both his own approach and his team's, resulting in the sport's ultimate success. These lessons are applicable well beyond basketball with questions and takeaways that you can apply to whatever personal or professional setback you've faced.
