I recently finished John Wooden’s book, “Wooden on Leadership.” While there was so much to take from the book, I wanted to highlight 5 specific leadership lessons I took from it. These are a mixture of his lessons on leadership and my interpretation of those lessons.
- There is nothing more important than being a good person. Period.
- No man is an island. You can’t do it yourself.
- Meticulousness and being detail-oriented is a common trait amongst the best leaders.
- Develop your own personal code/system of living. Believe in it 100%, BUT always be open to listening to others and improving, BUT always believe in your system. At the end of the day, YOU are the leader.
- Keep it simple.
There you have it. Simple.
