John Wooden’s secret to success

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

As a boy, college basketball coaching legend John Wooden learned a leadership lesson from his father:

“Don’t worry about whether you’re better than somebody else,” the elder Wooden told his son, “but never cease trying to be the best you can become. You have control over that. The other, you don’t.”

Result: the kind of selfless competitiveness that led Wooden and his UCLA teams to an unprecedented 10 national championships, including seven in a row from 1967 through 1973.
