Reviews - What do customers think about Coaching Your Kids To Be Leaders (Not Available-Ou?
The Future In Their Hands Apr 12, 2005
This wonderful volume extends the authors knowledge of sports leadership into all walks of life. With many practical applications and plentiful material from myriad sources, this is among my very favorite leadership books.
Don't be fooled into thinking this book is only for making leaders of children. This is just as applicable to subordinates and perhaps even to a floundering but teachable superior. It's highly accesible while remaining concise and never overstating a point.
Powerful Wisdom for Every Adult Who Knows a Kid! Feb 22, 2005
What a great age to be living in when men like Pat Williams, father of nineteen and sports executive for more than forty years, pour out their years of learning on the rest of us. He gives us a fully balanced picture in this treasure chest of encouragement, including interviews with hundreds of leaders throughout America.
Coaching Your Kids to be Leaders offers a thorough examination of leadership styles and advice. Williams begins by identifying the need for young leaders. One look at today's headlines and we are in agreement with him. He builds a case for leadership training in the home, takes a look at its nature, then tells us how to identify leadership potential in young people (and even the not so young people!)
Williams and his writing partner, Jim Denney, offer sound direction and seven easy to grasp principles for putting our kids on the path toward success: see a vision; be a good communicator; build good people skills; build good character; build competence; be bold; and most important-be a servant.
Practical instruction in how to mentor kids wraps up this complete picture. Who could resist the call to be a hero to some young person? If that role appeals to you, then this book is a tool you'll need to get there.
