Bo's Lasting Lessons

The Legendary Coach Teaches the Timeless Fundamentals of Leadership
By Bo Schembechler, John Bacon (Audiobook, 2007)
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. 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. Bo does not rely upon charts, graphs, or X's and O's to make his points; rather, he focuses on getting his players to challenge themselves and to reach for heights they had never thought possible.

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.
