Abstract:

What does it take to succeed? Bill Parcells knows. As head coach of the two-time Super Bowl-winning New York Giants, and now as head coach of the resurgent New England Patriots, Parcells has earned the respect of players, fans, and rivals for his fierce commitment to excellence. In Finding a Way to Win, Parcells lays out his philosophy and strategies for motivating personnel and creating organizations that rely on true teamwork. It's a handbook on leadership by one of the most well liked and admired leaders in professional sports.

Like the man himself, Finding a Way to Win is smart, no-nonsense, and straight-talking. As Parcells says, "There are no magic potions for success. The long-haul winners, the ones who last at the top in any organization, use a firmer foundation for success. They rely on old-fashioned things we call values." Each chapter in the book examines a different leadership principle: integrity, flexibility, loyalty, confidence, accountability, candor, preparedness, resourcefulness, humility, and patience. Parcells gives examples of the lessons he's learned from his coaching triumphs (and failures), then shows how leaders or managers in any business can use his principles to motivate their people, and to help their organization achieve, year after year.
