This book is a certified WINNER! What's even better is that it provides a solid, easy-to-understand blueprint for you to become a winner too!
“The Team Game” by Bellaria Jimenez and John F. Bucsek is an outline for business, planning, teamwork, and leadership based on principles and concepts from the world of sports. That right, not only do you get to learn how to make money and to be successful in business, but you get to do it through the exciting lens of team sports!
For every NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, or FIFA fan out there, this is such a treat!
The book takes advice and uses examples from coaching legends like Herbert Paul Brooks Jr. of the 1980 “Miracle” USA hockey team, Packers legend Vince Lombardi, multi-time Super Bowl champion Bill Belichick, and infamously fiery basketball coach Bobby Knight. Who wouldn't want to learn from these exemplar specimens? Even if learning wasn't the point of this book (which it is), they're just interesting and enjoyable people to read about.
This book teaches you how to develop a team or business philosophy, putting together your leadership or “coaching” staff based on specialization, building your roster of employees who work well together (as opposed to working only as individuals), putting together your plan or “playbook,” executing that plan or playbook, and learning from mistakes and successes like “film study.”
“The Team Game” is a very fun, interesting, and easy to digest book. It is definitely one of the best self-help and business books we've seen!
Before we go, we wanted to say that there's a part of this book that involves fish heads and a cunning yet somewhat unscrupulous salesman. It's hilarious and we don't want to spoil the whole story for you.
Bravo to these business partners and authors on creating such an amazing blueprint for success that we can all follow!
