The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership

The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership Review

Being a football coach, I am always trying to learn more about strategy as well as ways to motivate young men. I have always been intrigued by Bill Walsh. After all, the man did reinvent the game of football, and made it into what we know it as today. I am a fan of his previous books, and when I saw that this book was being released, I knew that I had to get my hands on it.

The book is a little unconventional, in that it is published posthumously. You can tell that the work was not quite finished, and Steve Jamison does not shy away from this fact. What you have is the words of Bill Walsh, supplemented with those that knew him best. Bill's son Craig, Joe Montana, John McVay, and Mike White, all give their insight into what made Bill Walsh such a spectacular person.

The beginning of the book is a little dry, as it is mostly Steve Jamison explaining how the book came to be. However, once you get to Part I, you find out quickly what this book is about...Leadership. The examples that this book gives comes from the football world, but can be applied to life in general. This book has given me a better understanding about the ways in which Bill Walsh was able to be a successful leader, but more importantly it has made me think about ways that I can become a better leader. As I was reading this book, I also began taking notes on how to create my own "Standard of Performance."

The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership Overview

The last lecture on leadership by the NFL's greatest coach: Bill Walsh

Bill Walsh is a towering figure in the history of the NFL. His advanced leadership transformed the San Francisco 49ers from the worst franchise in sports to a legendary dynasty. In the process, he changed the way football is played.

Prior to his death, Walsh granted a series of exclusive interviews to bestselling author Steve Jamison. These became his ultimate lecture on leadership.

Additional insights and perspective are provided by Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and others.

Bill Walsh taught that the requirements of successful leadership are the same whether you run an NFL franchise, a fortune 500 company, or a hardware store with 12 employees. These final words of 'wisdom by Walsh' will inspire, inform, and enlighten leaders in all professions.
