Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In this informative and inspirational book, Coach K, Duke University's head basketball coach, tells readers how he coaxes peak performances from his team, relying on lessons he learned as a captain in the U.S. Army.

Duke University's head basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski has proved himself a leader both on and off the court. He's led the Duke Blue Devils to five straight Final Four appearances, culminating in back-to-back championships in 1991 and '92. He has received five National Coach of the Year Awards--and many of the players he coached in college have gone on to NBA stardom.

From sportsmanship to respect, Leading with the Heart is a genuine gift from a coach who knows how to lead with heart.

   It's all about motivation
It is of course all about basketball and coaching young men to reach their peak performances. But I was impressed by the degree of emotional intelligence described by Coach K in working out what would be the best strategy to motivate both the team in difficult situations and individuals to perform to the best of their ability for both their sake and the team. To be honest, seems to me what makes him such a successful coach, his ability to tailor his approach to maximize motivational impact. This is something that many of us could learn to be more successful leaders.
   A Truly Inspirational Read!
As a fan of Duke basketball, I was interested to see how Coach K operates when the Duke Blue Devils coach. After reading his book Leading with the Heart, I discovered several things about him that I never knew before. This book gives a great depiction of the life of a boy who, when he grew up, wanted to become a successful person. This boy grew up with hard work and perseverance to coach Mike Krzyzewski, one of the greatest basketball trainers in history. Not only does this book talk about being successful, it also points out several leadership qualities that can help you improve your life. I would encourage everyone to read this book and use the knowledge that it possesses in life. Truly, the world has changed.
   Wow what a unique book on Leadership!!!
This book was a full stroke read as Coach K brings us through his life and tenure as a basketball coach at Duke University on the road. The stories are great, however it is the values that you acquaint through this book that make it stick. I have noticed a new hunger for discipline, a need to study my team in the eye and be honest, and a love for winning. Coach K reimagines what is winning in life and is a must read for those who love the genre of sports management. EH + DC + EH
