John Wooden on True Success

The legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden passed away last Friday at the age of 99. Under Coach Wooden, UCLA won a record ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period. John Wooden left a legacy of leadership wisdom through his numerous books including his conception of "the Pyramid of Success". In this talk delivered at the TED conference a few years ago, Wooden talks about true success being the satisfaction of knowing you that put forth your utmost effort in the game despite whether you win or lose. He readily quotes poetry and other sources of his inspiration throughout his life. This 20-minute talk is loaded with wisdom from a lifetime of success, and it is available on streaming video and video download from TED.com.

Be Quick - But Don't Hurry!

Perhaps the least controversial sports honor in living memory was the selection of John Wooden as "Coach of the Century" by ESPN. Wooden presided over college sports' most famous dynasty, winning 10 NCAA basketball championships in 12 years. His UCLA teams won with quickness, and always with class. Wooden was a teacher first and foremost, and his lessons - taught on the basketball court, but applicable throughout one's life - are summarized in his famed Pyramid of Success.

An all-city high school player in Los Angeles, Andrew Hill played - a little - in three national championships, from 1970 to 1972. At that time, Hill was upset at how unequally Wooden treated his starting players, and clashed with Wooden over a variety of social and political issues.

Hill went on to a successful career in television, rising to the presidency of CBS Productions. And one day, some 25 years after graduating from UCLA, he realized that everything he knows about getting the best out of his people he had learned directly from Coach John Wooden.

Be Quick - But Don't Hurry! tells the story of their renewed friendship, while sharing the lessons and secrets that hold the key to managing creativity in the idea-driven economy of the 21st century. Full of sound advice and warm reminiscence, this is the management audiobook of a lifetime.
