Product Description

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.

In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.

So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, enjoyable and quite brilliant 29 Nov 2013
By Neil
Format:Paperback
Quite simply, this is the best leadership book I've ever read. And I've read quite a few.

Its easy to read style takes you behind the scenes of the All Blacks, one of the worlds' most consistently high performing teams. It takes you into the pitches, locker rooms, practice sessions, selection panels and brutally honest `bunker' room conversations. It gives you pages packed with candid insights, fabulous quotes and powerful wisdoms shared by players and coaches. And then blends these beautifully with work by other leaders and leadership writers.

With some books you get the feeling that it can be condensed to 2 or three sides of A4, and has been expanded to fill a book. Not so this one. 15 sections each pick a theme that are simply packed with good stuff. I'm one of those readers who likes to mark pages and sections of particular interest. Hardly a page of this one was unmarked.

The book shows just how much goes into a great performing team, and how much it goes beyond simply 'winning'. The people speaking have been unflinching in discussing the setbacks and losing, and what they did in those times too. Throughout there's real heart and soul and greater purpose in here.

For me, this is not just a book for sports lovers (though I'm sure they'll love it - loads of stories and insights to share with your mates). In fact I've shown it to people who have little or no interest in sport whatsoever and they wanted a copy too. It goes deeper. I'm imagining it's for anyone who wants to be part of a team that itself wants to create, well, a Legacy through their work in some way.

I love it.

Inspiring, enjoyable, and quite brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're leading big change, read this book 29 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
I agree with everything Neil has said in his review.

Unusually for me, I couldn't put this book down and read it in 24 hours. By the end I was reeling from the effect of a book that is like a home-coming for leaders who lead for something inspiring and challenging beyond self and beyond profit.

It will be a timeless companion for those committed to creating a Legacy - simple ideas to grasp but not easy to live by, somehow both familiar but also new, and enormously affirming.

One of the most delightful aspects is the way it highlights the importance of heart, soul and humility. It's not called `Winning'. It's called `Legacy'.

So many leadership books go "down and in", helping people to achieve _their_ aims without seemingly a first thought for the wider picture beyond self or their organisation. This is a leadership book that instead comes "up and out", giving people a much bigger view of what their leadership might be like beyond self, beyond their organisation, beyond profit. And from a surprising direction - the super Alpha male environment of the world's top rugby team. What a brilliant mix.

Simply the best leadership book in the field and genuinely a fascinating read for anyone leading big change, whether you are interested in sport or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody brilliant 14 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
This is no ordinary management handbook. It's also a compelling story, an inspirational text, an anthropological survey, and a philosophical treatise. This excellent book works brilliantly on many levels to help leaders manage teams, deliver change, and leave a lasting legacy. Full of fascinating anecdotes and profound wisdom, it's sure to be a future classic. A highly satisfying read that inspires you practical change.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on leadership i have read 23 Dec 2013
By Velez
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not a huge fan of management/leadership books but this book is incredible. It is a wealth of information from many different sources and shows why the All Blacks are where they are today as the best sports team in the world. Their credo is one that we can all learn from in our own lives - both sport and work. Please read it.

You don't have to like sport to learn from and enjoy this book.it is about courage and meaning. Finding your strength and creating your story are the central challenges of this book.be a good ancestor.plant a tree who's shade you will not see.an antidote to secular materialism and a shout towards something more ancient and more free.
