"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.

Loved the story. Great insight and a clearer understanding of what a mentor should be.
No, this was my first
Sure, if I had the time to do so
"Anyone in leadership. .."
Anyone in leadership needs this book. I am going to apply the principals of being a mento leader in my team of six in child welfare workers. I know it will change their lives as it has changed mine.
"Add value to others and you will be enriched"
Good blend of real life and spiritual life guidelines for being an influence on others.
"Too much God and family values."
This book has too much preaching and little actual substance. Too much obvious advice, and I kept thinking "well, duuuuh" throughout the first charter before I could stomach no more and had to find something else to listen to.
