I picked this up at the library because I was looking for something educational, and helpful on leadership. As I started reading it I realized, wait a minute this is by a sbasketball coach and all of his examples havae to do with his basketball teams, so I was worried at first. I am not really into sports at all. However, it was a great, quick read. Lots of good, practical leadership knowledge, you can immediately apply. A good reminder of what it takes to be a strong and effective leader.
Encouraging words from a very good leader, despite what happened with the Celtics and the wishy-washyness of whether he's staying or going at Louisville.
I read this when I was in retail management.
Lead to Succeed is a leadership orientated book. It talks about what it takes to lead groups through catchy inferences to basketball.
Inspiring thoughts about leadership, with lots of illustrative anecdotes from the author's life as a basketball coach.
“Lying makes a problem part of the future; truth makes a problem part of the past.”
I read it mainly because the author was a basketball coach I really liked.
