The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.
In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.
So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?
The only fire this belongs in; is the fire, to your soul. Let it burn brightly. Be humble on your path; these souls get burnt into history.
Brilliant!!!!! Coincidently enough .... I listened to 'Legacy' on my return ride home from a Leadership Course in Quantico. Perfect ending to that Seminar and a joyful & insightful trip back home! Truly Impressed!
Critical and life changing for coaches, athletes, and young men
I'm rather shocked that this book has not been reviewed on iTunes. It may be one of the most important books has been written lately on character traits that reach beyond and are critical to the development of young men and I would argue young women in sports.
You would see a foundational shift in the way that our young people identify with not only their teams but their schools their friendships and everyone they come in contact with if they would but learn and practice the principles which he talks about in this book.
So many of the great players that may not be the most gifted but end up making the most impact on those around them harbour, either naturally, or with the help of their parents, these characteristics.
Enough already just buy it and enjoy it :-)
