Overview

What does it take to succeed? Bill Parcells knows. As head coach of the two-time Super Bowl-winning New York Giants, and now as head coach of the resurgent New England Patriots, Parcells has earned the respect of players, fans, and rivals for his fierce commitment to excellence. In Finding a Way to Win, Parcells lays out his philosophy and strategies for motivating personnel and creating organizations that rely on true teamwork. It's a handbook on leadership by one of the most well liked and admired leaders in professional sports. Like the man himself, Finding a Way to Win is smart, no-nonsense, and straight-talking. As Parcells says, "There are no magic potions for success. The long-haul winners, the ones who last at the top in any organization, use a firmer foundation for success. They rely on old-fashioned things we call values." Each chapter in the book examines a different leadership principle: integrity, flexibility, loyalty, confidence, accountability, candor, preparedness, resourcefulness, humility, and patience. Parcells gives examples of the lessons he's learned from his coaching triumphs (and failures), then shows how leaders or managers in any business can use his principles to motivate their people, and to help their organization achieve, year after year.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Now that former New York Knicks coach Pat Riley has written a bestseller on motivation (The Winner Within), it was predictable that another former New York coach would write a similar book. Parcells, the ex-coach of the New York Giants and current coach of the New England Patriots, is known as a master motivator and superb leader. Here, writing with freelance journalist Coplon, he argues that by using the principles that have worked for him in the sports world--loyalty, patience, humility, resourcefulness-managers and other businesspeople can create successful organizations. To drive home his points, Parcells uses sports anecdote after sports anecdote, and readers will learn much more about Parcells's insights into football than they will about motivational or organizational techniques for business. (Dec.)
Library Journal
Parcells, head coach of the New England Patriots football team and two-time Super Bowl victor as coach of the New York Giants, has written a book about leadership using his experiences in sports. Parcells attempts to demonstrate that lessons learned in a life of football are relevant to successful leadership in business. He devotes separate chapters to loyalty, flexibility, accountability, preparedness, and humility. He sums up each lesson nicely in a little anecdote drawn from a professional football game or sometimes a high school basketball game. Much of his book touts common sense, devotion to hard work, teamwork, and personal responsibility. One can almost hear Parcells in the locker room, motivating his players with just the right mixture of praise and criticism. For readers who are or would be leaders, this book is worthwhile. It would also help if they knew a little bit about football. Recommended for all public libraries.-Randy L. Abbott, Univ. of Evansville Libs., Ind.
