Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This recording discusses the business success strategies employed by National Football League coaches Mike Ditka, George Seifert, Bud Grant, Dennis Greene, Marty Schottenheimer, and five others. The coaches' advice includes such common axioms as persistence, hard work, planning, creativity, and productivity. What sets Game Plans for Success apart as a management tool is the application of these tired but true concepts to the well-known world of professional football. American businesses often use NFL coaches as motivational speakers, so this program should have a ready and willing audience. Narrator Bob Sevra transcends the typical sports announcer patter with an engaging and enthusiastic style. Libraries with nonfiction audio collections should consider purchase.?Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L., Ia.

Format: Paperback
Game Plans for Success gives the reader insight into ten great NFL coaches of the past and present. As the coaches talk about their experiences of putting a team together and winning, they give effective strategies for leadership and management. With techniques such as goal setting, preparation, communication, and trust, along with beliefs such as listen as well as command and present ideas not mandates, make this book not only relevant to people in sports but also to those in business and education. These coaches underlie what it takes to win in any arena.
