MACKINAC ISLAND (WWJ) – Sports and business are mixing at the Mackinac Policy Conference, hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber this week on Mackinac Island.

Talking one-on-one with WWJ Newsradio 950′s Vickie Thomas, Michigan State University men’s basketball head coach Tom Izzo offered this advice to businessleaders:

“Have a good leader, have everyone on the same page, take ownership in our company and your team,” said Izzo. “I think that those are the things that are key … chemistry is so key. You know, I don’t care if you’re at a radio station or if you have a football or basketball team,” he said.

Izzo also touched on another important relationship.

Wednesday Izzo and his wife are celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary. “She talks, I listen, you know. It’s a good deal,” said Izzo.
