Publisher's Summary

Inspire the people in your life to triumph - every day!

We've been told all our lives that whether you win or lose isn't important; it's how you play the game that matters. This is true in sports, business, or any other endeavor. But how you "play the game" has a lot to do with its outcome. And a good coach - one who places respect and conviction above popularity, who is firm yet open to the players' individual needs - can inspire their team to greatness, whether it is a football team, a work group, a committee, or a family.

In this innovative program, management expert Ken Blanchard and winning NFL coach Don Shula team up to share their powerful secrets of effective coaching in everyday situations. You'll learn:

  • The five great leadership principles of the COACH acronym
  • How to unleash the excellence in anyone
  • The importance of vision, conviction, credibility and adaptability in today's leaders
  • Why and how to "walk your talk"
  • And much more...

The skills of a great coach can be just as effective in the boardroom or living room as on the playing field. Instead of merely telling people what to do, you can help inspire them to work together enthusiastically: following a powerful vision, tapping into their hidden talents, and soaring to greatness and success.

Great second half

As an Australian for no knowledge or passion around gridiron, the first half of the book did get annoying with so many (to me) irrelevant American football examples. Probably very good for gridiron fans though.
Second half of the book was very good.
