If America were an NCAA basketball team, we’d be looking at a 0-32 season. Employees are missing crucial shots as job worries spike to levels we haven’t seen in years. Our co-workers and communities have split into politically polarized shirts vs. skins, and as a result, we’re fouling out and fumbling mission-critical assists.
How can we get back our A-game and heal the country’s division?
The answer, says Lynn Guerin and his co-author Jason Lavin, is to unify our teams like legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden did. Wooden wasn’t only a record-breaking coach who won 38 straight NCAA tournaments and 10 championships in 12 short years. He was a beloved mentor and teacher, and his lessons are more relevant today than ever.
Lynn Guerin serves as CEO and Founder of The John R. Wooden Course and President and “Head Coach” of his family-owned coaching, training, and performance development firm, Guerin Marketing Services, working with many of America’s most successful organizations.
For the past 20 years, Mr. Guerin has had the unique privilege of partnering with legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden and the Wooden family in the development and delivery of the John R. Wooden Course. He and Jason Lavin co-authored the book, Coach 'Em Way Up: 5 Lessons for Leading the John Wooden Way (Entrepreneur Press; November 17, 2020).
