Finding the Winning Edge (book) by Bill Walsh[edit | edit source]
In Finding the Winning Edge, Bill Walsh — Hall of Fame NFL coach and three-time Super Bowl champion — illustrates and outlines the basic organizational, coaching and system philosophies that he has used throughout his career. He discusses the methods behind fixing a troubled organization, including his program for hiring and developing a staff; evaluating and acquiring key players; building a game plan; and overcoming the mental barriers that frequently plague talented teams.
“Do everything possible not to personalize your team’s losses,” Walsh writes. “Exhibit an inner toughness emanating from three of the most effective survival tools — composure, patience and common sense.”
