Happy New Year!

I thought I would begin 2019 with some words of wisdom from a master leader. Several years ago I spent three days hosting coach John Wooden at Bellarmine University. Louisville’s coach, Denny Crum, was instrumental in helping us get Coach Wooden (his mentor) to come here to Louisville.

The coach had won 10 National Championships in 11 years, but he didn’t spend a lot of time talking about sports. Instead, he spent a good portion of his days with the students at Bellarmine, sharing the kind of wisdom he shared in this TED Talk. When he did talk about sports they were used as an analogy for the larger truths in life.

I was privileged to get to know him and to interview him for my book on leadership. This 17-minute TED Talk is entitled, The difference between winning and succeeding. I trust you will enjoy it as much as I did. We apologize if the link did not work correctly before.  Here is the video again.
