Editorial Reviews


In this book, Dr. Palestini demonstrates how the use of situational leadership theory by ten successful basketball coaches has contributed to their effectiveness and how these same leadership principles can be appropriately applied to anyone's leadership behavior, whether the individual be a parent, a teacher, an administrator or a CEO. (Phil Martelli, head basketball coach, St. Joseph's University, 2004 National Coach of the Year)

Bob Palestini's practical approach to leadership, based on behavioral profiles of basketball coaches, provides valuable insights for leaders in all walks of life. (H. Edward Hanway, President and CEO, CIGNA Corporation)

The most interesting parts of the book were the examples about the coaches' implementation of situational leadership and the Heart Smart scoring sheet. (School Administrator, January 2010)

Palestini puts the ball in your court with real life leadership principles that can be applied to coaching, parenting and all levels of executive management. (Dr. Jack Ramsay, Basketball Hall of Famer, ESPN Analyst, and former NBA Coach)
