Lists with This Book. Feb 08, Eduardo rated it it was ok Shelves: I had higher hopes for this book because of what I know of Coach K's character. I was disappointed because there was not much to separate this book from any other leadership book written by a coach.
I did find chapter 12 Celebrate Tradition to be a neat insight into some of the unique aspects of Duke basketball culture. It is this chapter that reaffirmed my respect for Coach K and how he chooses to live his life and run his program. His description of the time he spent with Jim Valvano was also I had higher hopes for this book because of what I know of Coach K's character.
What is Kobo Super Points?
His description of the time he spent with Jim Valvano was also moving and again highlights who Coach K is and what matters most to him. If you like Duke or Coach K and you are looking for leadership book to read, then I recommend this book. If you are looking for a leadership book to read, pick up a dart and throw it at the board to choose as I find most books in this genre to be very similar.
In my opinion, the one book in this genre that transcends the others is Wooden on Leadership. As great a coach and human being as Coach K may be, his book doesn't come close to Wooden's but neither does any other that I have read. Mar 05, Jennika rated it really liked it Shelves: Probably one of the only books from school that I actually have enjoyed so far. It was definitely interesting seeing Coach K's thoughts and experiences with leadership and its theories. I'm not a huge basketball fan, so I was really dreading this book going into it. I'm glad that I did read it though, as I've gained some great insight on someone who is a successful team leader and I can definitely apply this to my every day life.
Oct 13, Anthony Venturini rated it it was amazing. I read the non-fiction book Leading with the Heart by Mike Krzyzewski who is the head basketball coach at Duke University. I think that the purpose he had in writing this book was to inform the reader on how to develop good coaching skills as well as applying them to your everyday life, and allowing you to become a better individual along with becoming an even better teammate.
In the book, Coach K talks about using your time wisely, and not wasting it doing things that are going to hurt you, and I read the non-fiction book Leading with the Heart by Mike Krzyzewski who is the head basketball coach at Duke University. In the book, Coach K talks about using your time wisely, and not wasting it doing things that are going to hurt you, and also the team. He also discusses the importance of trust and leadership in order for the team to succeed.
Another thing that Coach K talked about in his books was academics. This stood out to me because he makes sure that his players are getting their work done, and also using their time wisely and not waiting till the last minute to get their work done. I think that this book is an exposition, and that this writing style fits the book well because throughout the book he is explaining and giving examples. I really liked this book because it deals with basketball and also Coach K is a role model to me, and hearing the things he has to say, and the way he approaches things really had me interested throughout the book.
I don't read books very often, but this book had me interested the whole time, and kept me thinking about his way of coaching, and how effective it really is.

I really enjoyed learning about Coach K's life. I really enjoyed how he talked about how he got his team ready for the four national championships he won. I enjoyed how he described what practice was like through his eyes. I liked the part where he said he dove on the floor after a ball to prove a point his players to hustle more. My favorite part of the whole book was when Jim Valvano a basketball coach at Nort This was another book my grandma told me to read since I liked the Duke Blue Devils.

25 Best Basketball Books For Players & Coaches
This is his advice about coaching and living a successful life. Why I picked up this book: You probably already know about Coach K if you follow college basketball. Since I don't, I learned about his book from the Navy's recommended reading list. Why I finished it: I struggled with this a little See above about me not being a college basketball fan.
His leadership tips, were good reminders but nothing new. I did like reading about the Olympic Dream Team. Jul 03, Josh rated it really liked it. Dec 17, Nicole rated it it was amazing. I received this book from my high school softball coach. It has outstanding life lessons that I have used ever since. I re-read it every year before softball season and will be able to apply it towards the future. I love how Krzyzewski uses examples from his team and the business world.
He has quite a heart and it shows by his former players raves about his personality and character. Nov 01, Jon Fugler rated it really liked it. This book is not about basketball. Coach K shares leadership lessons that span all of life. Lots of gems in here. Mar 28, Andrew rated it liked it. All things considered, this was a pretty generic book on leadership. It gets the extra half-star because the basketball stories did make it more interesting and easier to read. If you are a big fan of Duke basketball, you will probably like it more than I did. Jul 04, William "Spig" rated it it was amazing.
Beat leadership book I've read in years. Totally applicable to military leadership and my style. Apr 13, Lauren Head rated it really liked it. Thanks to my participation in BetterBookClub. Instead thinking that leadership just comes from someone with the word "manager" in their title I will look at others around me who are positive and show a good work ethic more.
Coach K said, "Leadership on any team should be plural and not singular. Having a collective group of pe Thanks to my participation in BetterBookClub. Having a collective group of people with various backgrounds and insights working together for the benefit of all should only lead to success. Coach K believes that a leader needs to be fair, but not equal.
In business this is a tight line to walk because if some does or gets something others are always looking and questioning that managers decision. However, if a manager is has a history of being fair to everyone, employees should not be second guessing their decisions. Being fair is a great lesson that isn't just important in business, but in everyday life as well.
Managers need to trust that their employees will do quality work without having a lot of rules about how things should be done. An employee that has this type of a trusting relationship with their manager will have a great foundation for a team. This book is full of great quotes! A few of the really inspiring quotes are as follows: It's only a collection of individuals.
The leader needs to be there bring out the best in someone and also be able to correct and guide someone so that they are always learning and progressing. And there is always a later. If an employee isn't performing up to standard don't not deal with it because you as a manager don't want to deal with it. Things like that truly effect the entire team. I like to think of each as a separate finger on the fist. Any one individually is important. But all of them together are unbeatable. It's not just about a team in the workplace either.
This quote is something that can cross over from work to home life. When someone challenges an idea of yours they aren't typically doing it to be mean. They are doing it to make the team better in the long run. It is important to talk about things that went wrong, but not to focus on those things. A team needs to see their leader as fearless. I love self-help and business books based upon the sports world. Books like this really help the message stick! I would recommend this book to anyone who is sports minded, even if they are a UK fan. I would also recommend this book to any leader within their company.

Throughout the book, the reader will learn the aspects Mike has to his coaching style, that many coaches don't. This book is an inspiration, a key to success in the world of basketball. My favorite character in this book is obviously the main character, Mike Krzewski. I choose Mike because throughout the book he keeps surprising you. In the first 50 pages I knew that Mike is a smart guy, and that he is good at what he does, but by the th page, I had a whole different perspective on him, and that is what I loved about him. For example, on page 7, it states, "Time management is a lesson that the students learn through us-not only as it relates to them individually, but as it pertains to a group".
Mike is a division I college basketball coach, has won multiple national championships, and is a huge success for a reason. He cares for the kids education, and wants to help them get to where THEY want to be in life. Throughout the book Mike shows just how unselfish he is, and that is one of the many reasons he is my favorite character.
Last, one quote that really stands out to me from the book as a whole is that of the cover. This is part of the cover for a reason, it explains what Coach K is all about. It shows that it isn't just about basketball, that there is much more to being successful. Even if you are the greatest basketball player in the universe, you still need the education, skills, proper manners, and good tips in order to be successful in anything.

It will show you leadership skills, unselfishness, teamwork, and ways to keep yourself from going insane. I personally think this book was very well written, and well told.
I am not the person who likes to read, i very rarely find books i like, and i can say actually read cover to cover with complete interests and excitement. Not only was it enjoyable, but it was educational. It teaches you not only how to be successful, but how to be a good person. Jan 07, Kevin Slisz rated it it was amazing. Leading with The Heart was an amazing book for basketball fans, players and any sport coach around the world.
This book focused on developing leadership and trust within a team. Coach K explains throughout the book to be a successful team everyone needs to feel connected and as if everyone is equal. In this story there is not much character development because this Leading with The Heart was an amazing book for basketball fans, players and any sport coach around the world.
In this story there is not much character development because this book is an overview of successful strategies for basketball, business and life. However, this book gives ways to make people develop in real life to motivate people for example creating a great successful basketball team through leadership and trust.
This is explained through the preseason in which Coach K tries to put across that they are all in this together and that they are all on the same level to make them feel equal to help make the team bond to an amazing TEAM. The theme we are all important is installed early in the text. This theme is to show when you convince people that everyone is important and equal it leads them to give their all and motivate themselves to become better at what they do to make the team better or even in the workplace. These effects of the feeling of unimportance can be limited by just convincing and showing people that we are all important.
In basketball, it is to show everyone's skillset is important making the team become a great team when their skillsets are added together. The other theme Coach K explains is not shown just in basketball but through life. Being able to make adjustment is very important. Making adjustments to what is not going well in a game is crucial to give your team the best position to win by not allowing the other team to capitalize your lack of adjustments.
However, making adjustments is real crucial in the real world because some people may be going down the wrong path which can lead them negative events in life but the capability to realize the wrong you're doing and being able to fix it is very positive characteristic and life changing.
