John Maxwell, Michael Josephson & others have raved about John Wooden's leadership skills. This book is a quick read and worth your time.

If you are looking for a leadership book that puts you into action and gets you really thinking, this book is for you. Instead of just theory, the work book style of the content challenges you to journal and answer questions about yourself and your team while helping you put together a plan to execute.

A great book teach great lessons. What's more John Wooden has the track record to back up his teachings. Like all books of this category it does have the issue of giving many, many examples of the same principal.

“Don’t mistake activity for achievement. To produce results, tasks must be well organized and properly executed; otherwise, it’s no different from children running around the playground—everybody is doing something, but nothing is being done; lots of activity, no achievement.” 2 likes
