I'm not sure Vince Lombardi gets a fair treatment as the author's poster boy for transactional (read, not good) coaches. Lombardi was focused on adults playing sports for a living not 12 or 16 year olds.
Page 213 reads like some new age tract - I quote "Since true competition is a "mutual quest for excellence," there are no winners and losers; everyone who competes wins." I guess in a way that could be true, but it smacks of handing out trophies for showing up.
My other issue is his implied view that he as a "Teacher-Coach" knows best how to raise your and everyone else's children. Parents are people that must buy into his philosophy, or the implication is that they are no better than those bad transactional coaches. He is enlightened and saving those in his charge, parents are welcome to join in if they follow him as well, if they don't then please back away. At one point there is a story he tells of someone (I think his wife) saying he has a messiah complex. I see little evidence that has been addressed by the author in his emotional development.
Having said all that, there is good stuff in here about communication and connecting with kids. Not sure I would want all my coaches (I'm a sport league commissioner) to be like this, but some could certainly benefit from some of it.
I appreciate the absolute candor and honesty, albeit, sometimes just as painful (from the heart) to read. But you have to read it to fully appreciate what is being shared. To reach the conclusions he has come to, were found through pain and despair. An aha moment that lead him down a forward path, and teachable moments.
This book IS NOT for the first time coach, it is for ALL coaches especially for those with the win at all cost attitudes. It is a book about redefining the relationship between Coaches and young Athletes. It is about why you coach. It is a challenge to you to ask yourself, why?
It is a challenge to you to be a selfless Coach, to be a teacher of good character. Your job as a coach goes beyond just winning a game, your job as a coach is to help create healthy adults. Some would say, that is not my job. But if these kids are your responsibility for any time, 1,2,3 hours per week, yes it is your job.
I am not going to say that I agree with everything Joe says and that this book is now a core strategy for me. But much like the The Matheny Manifesto: A Young Manager's Old-School Views on Success in Sports and Life , there is a great deal that I can take away from this book. 2 different people, 2 different upbringings, arriving at some of the same conclusions.
Both great books for different reasons, and I highly recommend them both. If you are looking for books that tell you how to dictate sports on the field, these books are not for you. If you are looking for personal growth as a coach, these books are for you.
His telling of his career in the NFL and his admission of less-than-noble behaviors expose what all organized (not just professional) sports pressure players and coaches to do.
The beauty of the book is that he doesn’t just expose the pitfalls, but offers solutions that have been successfully implemented in numerous schools and sports organizations. It works.
His writing style is perfect. I shed lots of tears at the sincerity of his stories and the good news of the successes.
