It is always worth listening to the wisdom of John Wooden. I posted a review of his book Wooden on Leadership a while back. An earlier book, They Call Me Coach, was highly influential in my early coaching development, as I shared in this post.
In this video he talks coaching philosophy, and specifically the idea that success and winning aren’t the same. You may have seen my series on the drivers of success. That’s about winning. At best, though, winning is only a potential indicator of success. Wooden, as you will hear in this video, prefers to judge it in terms of maximizing potential.
Enjoy and absorb!
