A Passion to Lead - Abridged

Seven Leadership Secrets for Success in Business, Sports, and Life

By Jim Calhoun & Richard Ernsberger, Jr.
Narrated by Jim Calhoun / 4 hours 51 minutes

Coach Jim Calhoun is one of the most successful coaches in college basketball history. Having sent countless players to the NBA, Coach Calhoun is known for producing not just great athletes but great human beings. In A Passion to lead, he shares the principles that have allowed him to have such a fundamental impact on so many young men. When he took command of the Connecticut Huskies, the team had lost five straight seasons. In seventeen years under his leadership, Calhoun has gone on to create a legacy: the team has dominated the Big East Conference while winning two collegiate national championships. But what makes Coach Calhoun such an excellent leader? What are his motivational techniques? Calhoun reveals them here, and includes anecdotes about his life as a coach, family man and, ultimately, a teacher—as well as the following key principles:
• Win Every Day: develop good habits, set high standards
• Hands on and Hands off: hire good people and give them space but be detail-oriented
• Craft a Plan B: be flexible and clever when circumstances
demand tactical shifts
• And much more!
