8/14 - Paul Levy, Goal Play!: Leadership Lessons from the Soccer Field
Paul Levy’s book is a must read for any CEO who recognizes that the traditional hierarchical approach to leading an organization in the complexity of our times will not deliver sustained success and would like to consider another approach. Paul’s book is also a great read for young leaders who want guidance as they attempt to master the challenges of leadership in times like these that are charged with volatility, complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. Paul’s advice and wisdom are served up intertwined with the metaphor of the complexities of soccer and the lessons learned by an experienced coach who has also had a remarkable career as a creative leader of large complex organizations with problems that threatened them with failure. (Eugene Lindsey, CEO of Atrius Health)
Paul Levy offers insightful lessons in leadership, cleverly weaving in delightfully up-lifting experiences from his years on the touchline to frame his powerful message. These light hearted stories, plucked from the diary of a soccer coach, offer the executive interested in any expanding their leadership skills a chalkboard full of sound “drills”. (Bill Taylor, General Manager, Four Season Hotel, Boston)
In a day and age where ‘leader’ is a title appropriated by tin pot despots and self-serving egotists, Paul Levy’s story of servant leadership needs to be digested and considered. No industry more than health care stands in the messy intersection of public policy, academic debate, and business interest. In short, clear prose, Levy shows us how a real leader can stand in the midst of those tempestuous seas, and lead. A must read. (Jeff Swartz, former CEO, Timberland)
