They Call Me Coach by Paul D. Barchitta, Coach Me Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Coach Me books, One of the core courses that I teach is Management 101. Introduction to business. The discipline of Management has evolved over time and the current trend in Corporate America is how does an organization morph from Management into Coaching. Society has become sensitive, and if you were to ask me, too sensitive, where the emotional wellbeing of the employee has been thrust to center stage. Corporate America has realized that you are not just an employee anymore, you are a resource, hence the change from “Personnel” to “Human Resource Management”. If we are going to view the employee more as a resource and less as a disposable component of an organization. Hence, the need for coaching. The need for the metamorphosis and paradigm shift away from management towards coaching is front and center. A goal of this book is to identify the foundations of management, the backbone of my management lectures every day in my management classes, and infuse the wisdom of the greatest coaches in the history of team sports. This book chronicles the foundations, concepts and theories of management and sprinkles in the quotes from coaches whether they were famous or not and explain how that quote relates to the management theories identified in the book.

They Call Me Coach by Seth Davis, Wooden A Coach S Life Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wooden A Coach S Life books, A provocative and revelatory new biography of the legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, by one of America's top college basketball writers No college basketball coach has ever dominated the sport like John Wooden. His UCLA teams reached unprecedented heights in the 1960s and '70s capped by a run of ten NCAA championships in twelve seasons and an eighty-eight-game winning streak, records that stand to this day. Wooden also became a renowned motivational speaker and writer, revered for his "Pyramid of Success." Seth Davis of Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports has written the definitive biography of Wooden, an unflinching portrait that draws on archival research and more than two hundred interviews with players, opponents, coaches, and even Wooden himself. Davis shows how hard Wooden strove for success, from his All-American playing days at Purdue through his early years as a high school and college coach to the glory days at UCLA, only to discover that reaching new heights brought new burdens and frustrations. Davis also reveals how at the pinnacle of his career Wooden found himself on questionable ground with alumni, referees, assistants, and even some of his players. His was a life not only of lessons taught, but also of lessons learned. Woven into the story as well are the players who powered Wooden's championship teams – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Walt Hazzard, and others – many of whom speak frankly about their coach. The portrait that emerges from Davis's remarkable biography is of a man in full, whose life story still resonates today.

They Call Me Coach by Brian Goff, From The Ballfield To The Boardroom Management Lessons From Sports Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From The Ballfield To The Boardroom Management Lessons From Sports books, No one can deny that sports and business are two of the most potent forces in our culture today. Sport, play, and the terms and phrases that define them, are engrained in our collective psyche, influencing the ways in which we conduct business-as a game, with rules of engagement, tournaments of competition, the shame that accompanies defeat, and the bragging rights that accrue to the victor. The parallels are ubiquitous; as the NFL's Bill Parcells stated in a Harvard Business Review article, my guess is that the challenges I've faced are not all that different from the ones that executives deal with every day. People are people, and the keys to motivating them and getting them to perform to their full potential are pretty much the same whether they're playing on a football field or working in an office. From the Ballfield to the Boardroom draws from Brian Goff's expertise as a managerial economist to shed new light on the sports-business connection. Using dozens of examples from across the spectrum of professional and college sports, he analyzes the ways in which key decisions are made on the playing fields and locker rooms and applies these lessons to the corporate context. From the distinctive leadership styles of legendary coaches Tom Landry, Vince Lombardi, John Wooden, and Bobby Knight, among others, to such culturally significant developments as the racial integration of Major League Baseball and the meteoric rise of NASCAR, Goff draws from the world of sports to provide a solid foundation in the managerial arts, including: assessing risk and uncertainty, conducting market and competitive analysis, wooing customers, fostering an innovative culture, managing information and communication flows, and resolving labor disputes. The result is an incisive look at the sport of business, with practical insights for successful management at all levels of your organization.
