Limited time offer: If you buy the print edition, you can keep the Kindle edition for yourself! In John Wooden: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches, you will learn the inspirational story of arguably the greatest coach of the twentieth century, John Wooden. Few coaches carry the same esteem as Wooden, known for not only being a highly effective coach, but also a mentor and friend to his players. Wooden consistently led by example by inspiring his players to build strong habits both on and off the court. The influence Wooden had on the players he coached is evident, as many of his disciples have gone on to achieve great feats in their own respective careers. Coach Wooden was able to lead his teams to ten national championships, including one run that spanned seven consecutive years. There are a number of key leadership principles that can be learned from Wooden, such as his Seven-Point Creed and Pyramid of Success. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Background Story Wooden's Coaching Career What Made John Wooden a Good Leader? The Seven-Point Creed, Two Sets of Three, Wisdom, and Pyramid of Success How John Wooden Maximizes Player Talent The John Wooden System Key Takeaways Conclusion and John Wooden's Legacy An excerpt from the book: It is often said that we walk in the footsteps of our forebears. The world is built by men and women that have been inspired by people that came before them. We develop on what others before us have started, and we work on it to make it better or pave the way for other generations to start on where we left off. That is the endless cycle of how society and any discipline progresses. The same is true in the world of basketball. The players of today were shaped by the eras of yesterday. Today's players work on the skills that past legends honed and used as their trademark moves to make them unique or to perfect them in ways that yesterday's stars were not able to do. That is how the game of basketball evolves. Skills, knowledge, and nutrition improve as players today study what has happened to the basketball stars that have played in the years or decades before them. In the lore of basketball knowledge and strategy, the legendary coaches that have become household names these past two decades worked similarly on what their forebears started long before they even knew the X's and O's of the sport. Luke Walton learned from Steve Kerr. Steve Kerr had the pleasure of playing under two legends in the likes of Phil Jackson and Gregg Popovich. And when you trace it all the way back, perhaps all the coaches that have been avid students of the game can trace their roots down to the legendary John Wooden's teachings. John Wooden's name is usually synonymous with the UCLA basketball dynasty during the 60's and 70's. He was the man responsible for bringing home the NCAA championship to Westwood ten times in only 12 years, thus earning him the nickname "The Wizard of Westwood." And during those 12 years, he won the title for the UCLA Bruins a record seven times while other coaches could not even win three national titles in a row in Division I basketball. When it came down to winning during that era of college basketball, nobody did it better than Wooden.
