I walk into the library and there is uusally a book that grabs my attention. The book is uusally a biography or an autobiography. I am still fascinated with the book The Score Takes Care of Itself My Philosophy of Leadership by Bill Walsh. written by Steve Jamison and Craig Walsh. The book was posthumously released which gave it more effect when it came to Bill’s opinion on other coaches and their philosophies. It was not his intention to insult or criticize other coaches, but to be true to himself and his own philosophy. The input from his former players, and assistant coaches added a nice touch about Bill’s work ethic and drive to succeed. The difficult part was the criticism he had to deal with as a coach of a successful program and the lack of respect he recieved after becoming successful. This is what eventually took its toll on him. His leadership expertise was sought after by many fortune 500 hundred companies. What I got most out of this book was how good teaching drives good leadership.
