Abstract

How do we measure leadership? How do we measure success? Does the real measure of success escape analysis? According to John Wooden, team success is dependent on the individual success of each team member. Conversely, each team member’s success is dependent on the success of the whole. Presents Wooden’s definition of individual success as the “peace of mind which is the direct result of self‐satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming”. John Wooden devoted his life’s work to explaining how to coach people to achieve that peace of mind, that success. His methods produced winning teams for decades. His formula for coaching provides a classic model for today’s business leader by showing how to build a winning business team, one that will endure through the continual uncertainty of today’s business environment. Explores the essential building blocks of coaching in Wooden’s style of leadership, and how they can be applied to the business environment.
