The Gold Standard: Building a World-Class Team by Mike Krzyzewski

Says Coach K: In all forms of leadership, whether you are a coach, a CEO, or a parent, there are four words that, when said, can bring out the best in your team, your employees, and your family...I Believe In You. These four words can mean the difference between a fear of failure and the courage to try. In his previous bestselling books, Coach K has guided readers to success the way he has guided his teams at Duke University - - witht the power of his inspirational words and phenomenal leadership skills. But that was wuth cikkege kids...Now, Coach K has stepped up to take on an entirely new challenge - by volunteering to coach the US Olympic Basketball team. Comprised of some of the biggest NBA stars, Coach K has to work with huge egos and personal reivalries in order to create an American team that could win against the best competition in the world and restore Team USA to the gold standard of basketball. This is more than a celebratory book - its Coach Ks first-hand account of how he dealt with such stars as Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and all the rest to buy into his total team pllay. Half a book on basketball, half a book on management techniques, The Gold Standard captures Coach Ks personal style and approach to getting different (and sometime difficult) people to work hard and suceed in reaching a common goal.
