Overview

Bo's Lasting Lessons: The Legendary Coach Teaches the Timeless Fundamentals of Leadership by Bo Schembechler, John Bacon

There are very few coaches held higher esteem than Bo Schembechler. As coach of the University of Michigan football team, he won 13 Big Ten titles and finished as the winningest coach in their storied history. But beyond the wins and losses, Bo is best remembered for the remarkable impact he had on his players and fans alike.

In BO'S LASTING LESSONS, the coach draws on his years of experience, using first-person anecdotes to deliver timeless lessons on leadership, motivation and responsibility. His distinctive gruff voice leaps from the page.

With pithy language, Bo explains that true leadership requires the compassion to actively listen to your people, and then to have the courage to do what is right every time.

A big believer in peer pressure and in always making his players accountable for their actions, Schembechler has coached athletes who went on to become professional football players, doctors, lawyers and CEOs.

Bo tells his story through numerous anecdotes which will be amusing to anyone who remembers that era of college football. The lessons are real though and important and the stories each impart wisdom and a good life lesson. It would be interesting for any football fan.

I learned a ton about a good decent man and hiw he stayed true to his ideals. It also opened my eyes to how ineffective many of the managers and leaders are out there.

i grew up a michigan fan. while i always respected Bo, i never really knew much about him personally. while he probably understates his shortcomings a bit in this book, it is still an excellent book for any Wolverine fan to read! it brings back so many memories of a great period of Michigan football history, while telling his vision of what it takes to be a leader.
