Abstract:

When Tony Dungy led the Indianapolis Colts to victory in Super Bowl XLI--the first African American coach to win the big game--millions wondered, amazed by the success of his quiet, authoritative leadership style: how does he get it done? In this memoir, Dungy reveals the secrets to his success--principles, practices, and priorities that have kept him on track despite overwhelming personal and professional obstacles, including firings, stereotypes, and the tragic loss of a child. In the face of so much adversity, Tony has not only survived but risen to the top of his profession in a way that's won the respect of fans, players, and even his competitors. His thoughts on leading, succeeding, and attaining true significance may inspire you to take a long, hard look at the things that really matter in your own life.--From publisher description.
