9781600240218: Bo's Lasting Lessons: The Legendary Coach Teaches the Timeless Fundamentals of Leadership

There are very few coaches held higher esteem than Bo Schembechler. As coach of the University of Michigan football team, he won 13 Big Ten titles and finished as the winningest coach in their storied history. But beyond the wins and losses, Bo is best remembered for the remarkable impact he had on his players and fans alike.

In BO'S LASTING LESSONS, the coach draws on his years of experience, using first-person anecdotes to deliver timeless lessons on leadership, motivation and responsibility. With pithy language, Bo explains that true leadership requires the compassion to actively listen to your people, and then to have the courage to do what is right every time. Bo does not rely upon charts, graphs, or X's and O's to make his points; rather, he focuses on getting his players to challenge themselves and to reach for heights they had never thought possible.

A big believer in peer pressure and in always making his players accountable for their actions, Schembechler has coached athletes who went on to become professional football players, doctors, lawyers and CEOs.

From AudioFile:

The famed Michigan football coach offers lessons on being an effective leader and manager, gleaned from years of shaping one of the nation's winningest college teams. A better voice could not have been found to drive home his points. John Mayer's gravelly yet clear tone enthusiastically invokes the mantras the coach prescribes for leadership success: Be passionate about your job; seek a mentor, not money, when starting out; respect and listen to your people; don't hold grudges; and take pride in what you do. Key points are repeated with a musical backdrop at the end of sections--these summaries are very helpful. Of course, there are football anecdotes, but none that a nonfan won't understand. An interesting interview with coauthor Bacon concludes the book. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
