Publisher's Summary

"Your only job is to help your players be better." That single idea had a huge impact on Tony Dungy when he heard it from one of his earliest mentors, and it led him to develop the successful leadership style so admired by players and coaches throughout the NFL. Now, a storied career and a Super Bowl victory later, Tony Dungy is sharing his unique leadership philosophy with you.

In The Mentor Leader, Tony reveals what propelled him to the top of his profession and shows how you can apply the same approach to virtually any area of your life. In the process you'll learn the seven keys of mentoring leadership—and why they're so effective; why mentor leadership brings out the best in people; how a mentor leader recovers from mistakes and handles team discipline; and the secret to getting people to follow you and do their best for you without intimidation tactics. As a son, a football player, and a winning coach, Tony has always learned from others on his path to success. Now you can learn to succeed for your team, family, or organization while living out your values—by becoming a mentor leader.

Must read if you are a leader

This book is so good. I am starting a new position as instructional leader for an Elementary School. I have learned so much and can take many of the tools from this book to apply to my new role. I am glad I decided to listen to this. It was worth it.

Too much God for my taste

I don't mind the author being religious, but constantly mixing God into a book of good leadership seems a bit of a lapse of judgment. It all got too distracting for me really.

This is a review of the bible

He is only talking about god en jesus. In my opinion it is already difficult to take someone serious who truly believes in god and what is written in the bible, because how can you than really think about and reason all other things in life? But ok, I can give it a try, but if half of all the chapters is about god, jesus and the bible, that is very annoying if you expect a serious story about leadership.
