I haven’t gotten very far into the book yet, and already I find myself swimming in wisdom and insights on leadership and life from the great John Wooden.
The title says that the book is about leadership. While it clearly addresses the issue of leadership, I also see all kinds of application for people who want to build better relationship, communication, and conflict resolution skills as well.
Here’s one quote that struck me particularly strongly:
“As a leader, you must be sincerely committed to what’s right rather than who’s right.”
I don’t know that I can add any significant value to this quote. I can only encourage you to remember it the next time you find yourself in a conflict conversation.
