Since joining the Yankees in 1996, Joe Torre has quickly reestablished the team as one of the great success stories in all of professional sports. But Torre has not only shown his outstanding managerial talents by leading the Yankees to two championships in three years. He's also survived the pressure-cooker of big-market media, established a calm, effective working relationship with George Steinbrenner, and cultivated clubhouse harmony on a team packed with distinct personalities. That harmony, together with Torre's emphasis on steadiness, optimism, serenity, mutual respect and responsibility, paved the way for his team's record-shattering 125-win season and 1998 World Series sweep.

In Joe Torre's Ground Rules for Winners, the Yankee manager reveals the twelve keys to his phenomenally successful management philosophy -- keys directly applicable to business and to life. Drawing from his years of experience in the corporate microcosm that is professional baseball. Torre shares his wisdom of the universal concerns of managers -- handling tough bosses, dealing with both setbacks and success, earning the trust and respect of your team players and bringing together a diverse group of individuals into a cohesive unit with a willingness to make the sacrifices necessary to win. Joe Torre's Ground Rules for Winners is a comprehensive guide to the management techniques that Torre has refined, illustrating his methods with vivid, colorful stories from his years in professional baseball.

Torre's invaluable insights will provide listeners with the tools they need to develop a winning outlook, and to get the most out of themselves and their colleagues, whether in sports, business, or life.

About the Author:

Joe Torre clinched second World Series as the manager of the New York Yankees in 1998, making him the toast of New York and the baseball world. He also managed and played for the Atlanta Braves, the New York Mots, and the St. Louis Cardinals, playing in the All-Star Game nine times. He won Manager of the Year awards in both 1996 and 1998.

From AudioFile:

Seasoned baseball manager Torre organizes his leadership wisdom into 12 key principles that can be applied to any situation in which you are managing or reporting to other people. Steadiness, optimism, serenity and mutual respect are some of the keys, and it's impressive in these times to hear him promote absolute loyalty in relationships, even when people are making your life miserable. He gives great examples of his ability to understand people and to work with their individual differences without sacrificing the team's purpose or integrity. It's a great story/lesson that's been seamlessly abridged, and Torre reads it in a natural way with a deep, secure speaking voice. This is a genuine listening treat. T.W.
