5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide May 1 2001
Format:Hardcover
As the CEO of a largish software distributor I have found that USC's head coach's sports based experience is totally transposable to the boardroom. It's all about motivating people to maximise the return they get from their own potential. The art is knowing how best to apply that approach to the individual employee, and John Robinson is right on the money with his advice. If Malcolm from sales fouls up I openly question his sexuality, and have even told him to drop down and give me 20 in the foyer of our building. Yet Clive from personnel reacts better to a more nurturing approach rather than my snapping a wet towel at his rear. Sales are up, the workforce is motivated and I'm a happy man.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful resource material for coaches. Sept. 17 2000
Format:Hardcover
A useful resource material for mentors and coaches. The author has valuable 'gems' and useful insight in developing and facilitating people to 'grow' to meet challenges. Put simply, a useful book to have as a reference on motivating people to attain greater heights.
