Eleven Rings (book) by Phil Jackson[edit | edit source]
One of the most decorated coaches in sports history, we can all learn a lot from the “Zen master.” In Eleven Rings, Phil Jackson explores everything from humanistic psychology and Native American philosophy to Zen meditation. In the process, he developed a new approach to leadership based on freedom, authenticity, and selfless teamwork that turned the hypercompetitive world of professional sports on its head.
“The most we can hope for is to create the best possible conditions for success, then let go of the outcome,” Jackson writes. “The ride is a lot more fun that way.”
