Leadership Lessons from Coach Prime | Are you Effective or Infective?

Coach Prime, Jackson State University

In Leadership Lessons from Coach Prime | Are you Effective or Infective?, I examine Coach Prime’s (Deion Sanders) statement, “Are you effective or infective?”. This statement comes from the last episode of the series. In this episode Coach Prime puts a vote up to this team and coaching staff to help deal with someone spreading negative vibes throughout the Jackson State University football family.

Deion Sanders or “Prime Time” is one of the greatest Defensive Backs to ever play in the National Football League (NFL) and Sanders was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2011. In addition to being a professional American Football player, Deion Sanders also put a respectable career in Major League Baseball (MLB).

But that’s not why we’re here today. Instead, we’re going to focus on Deion Sanders’ (now Coach Prime) positive impact on Jackson State University and the coaches, staff, and players there. Coach Prime leads from the front in the show of the same name on Amazon Prime.
