This book was one of those books I thought about during the day and couldn't wait to read it before bed. The practical and fundamental principles throughout the book really made sense and prompted me to incorporate them into my daily life. John's style of writing is oh so readable, intelligent, and it's like he's sitting down and discussing his coaching/life philosophy face to face.

I recently read "The Coach Approach" and recommend it highly. It is a well written and easily readable guide to better communication with the people you both work with and live with. I think I wore out my hi-liter before getting through the book. And if you have coaching experience, you will find it even more beneficial. Great job, Mr. Brubaker!!

I was lucky enough to have Coach Bru as a coach my sophomore year in college. Every lesson that he instilled in us during those ever so important years in a young mans life, he continues to use in his book. He taught us that if we practice and play as a team we will win as a team. The same thing goes for a successful business. Coach Bru does a fantastic job using sports and business to get his point across. Cant wait to read the next installment "Seeds to Success". Thanks Coach Bru...ps Thanks Coach Mills

I recently finished the "The Coach Approach" while flying home from a business meeting. I would recommend all traveling business people to grab a copy. The author thought of everything in putting together strategies that will lead to your own success. Although not all of the ideas may be relevant to you, if you have a vision of your own future goals, you have a choice on how to get there. John's concepts, such as "process of self-discovery for individuals and teams" broadens the audience to think differently. The concepts are easily grasped. The analogies, such as "physical fitness to fiscal fitness" resonate will all types of leaders in the business world. The coaching points and timeouts at the end of the chapters create reference points to go back to create a real connection for you to apply. I appreciate the timelessness of the information. Too many business books relate to flavor of the day concepts. Although the approach is basic, the organization of chapters by quarters creates a flow that keeps the reader wanting for more and realizing how much is not practiced regularly. There are quite a few lists (e.g., rituals, questions to ask yourself) throughout the book, however, each set have a specific reason and context to the chapter. I see the questions as building the right habits that we should be doing anyway. Over time, the information will be reinforced and executed. There's no "I" in team, but the author made sure we saw the "I" and "We" ratio to boost performance and increase overall team engagement. - Thomas B. Dowd III, author of "The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas: Growing from a Cynic to a Professional in the Corporate World" and "From Fear to Success: A Practical Public-speaking Guide"
