From the Publisher

Vince Lombardi, whom many believe to be the greatest football coach in the history of the sport, is both a household name and an icon. He is not only renowned in the sports world, but also in business and industry for his exceptional leadership skills. In Run to Win, acclaimed author Don Phillips examines Lombardi's famous coaching style by painting a picture of a fascinating individual, a man whose ingenious leadership helped lead his teams to nine playoff victories in a row, including wins in the first two Super Bowls.

By extracting powerful lessons from a man who could both lead and inspire, Phillips gets to the heart of what made Lombardi great and shows readers what it takes to be a winner. At the same time, this groundbreaking book tells the inspiring story of Lombardi's ten-year career with the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins, complete with anecdotes, quotes, and Lombardi Principles that show why this legendary coach continues to be a role model for effective leadership in business today.

Totally accessible and utterly fascinating, Donald T. Phillips's Run to Win empowers readers with the knowledge to succeed in business, while entertaining them with tales of a man whose ability to win under any circumstance is unsurpassed in the history of professional sports.
