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.
