This book offers insights from sports, health care, business and government to help leaders get better outcomes. Here are some comments from experts in the field: "Paul Levy, who managed the cleanup of Boston Harbor and became the nation's most acclaimed hospital CEO, is a leader of uncommon skill and breadth. In Goal Play!, he offers powerful lessons in leadership by drawing on experiences ranging from coaching girls' soccer to managing the aftermath of catastrophic medical mistakes. How should a top executive communicate with front line staff, and with the outside world? How can a manager nurture great teams while celebrating superstars? How should a leader react when things go wrong... and right? After reading this insightful, unblinkingly honest, and extremely readable book, you'll have the answers you need to be a more effective mentor, coach, and leader."
Robert Wachter, Professor of Medicine, USCF
If you could sum up Goal Play! in three words, what would they be?
The book is well written and easy to listen to. Each chapter starts out with a soccer anecdote, but the soccer parallels stop a few minutes into the chapter. Still, the lessons are useful. I would reccomend this book.
