About Donnie Jones

As a former college basketball coach for over 28 years with back-to-back National Championships while at the University of Florida and now as a Scout with the Los Angeles Clippers, I know what it takes to help you build your team into a winner!

You know one of the things that drives my passion for coaching every single day is the fact that I get to add value to people and help them reach their dreams. Billy Graham once said:

“Coaches have more impact on a young person in one season than a pastor can in a lifetime”

5 Daily Standards That Drive My Passion For Adding Value To People


1. Positivity
Be an Energy Giver. We can choose our attitude everyday. Do you know the average child laughs two hundred times a day and the average adult only four. I know it sounds simple but with a positive attitude we can change the world in an instant. Being Positive only makes us and everyone around us better.

2. Humility
Humility is the quality of being humble and free from pride and arrogance. We should strive to be peacemakers who loves and forgives others. We’ve all made bad decisions and had things happen to us but if we are able to tear down the barrier and forgive, it opens up opportunities for us to add value to others.

3. Love
Compassion and caring leads to trust. John Maxwell said it best “ People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.” 4 ways I show love is to Listen-Love-serve-and care I have learned through life that the Ultimate Human Currency is Trust as you can not buy it only earn it. It’s so important to keep loving as greatness is determined by service to others.

4. Communication
Communication to a relationship is like Oxygen to life. Without it,It dies. Anytime you have a void in communication-negativity fills it and it grows. So remember to be careful with your words as they have influence on the hearts and minds of others.

5. Unity
Just like a great team, true unity is made when you put aside individual wants for the collective good of the group. The power of unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, so many wonderful things can be achieved.
