In only 13 years as a head football coach, first at Bowling Green and then at Utah, Florida, and Ohio State, Urban Meyer has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of his sport, with 3 national championships and a cumulative record of 142 wins and only 26 losses. But sheer statistics are not the measure of his true accomplishment, nor do they speak to his own extraordinary learning journey. Now, in this book, he offers to readers his unparalleled insights into leadership, team building, and the keys to empowering people to achieve things they might never have thought possible.
A student of psychology long before he became a coach, Meyer believes that trust is the bedrock of great achievements and healthy relationships, and explains how to build it, step by step - whether in a team, a family, or a Fortune 500 company. With trust in place, a deep bond unites us in common purpose, and cultivates what he calls 'Above the Line' behavior - a learned, empowered response to the challenges we face every day.
Writing with his customary candor and humility, Meyer delivers insights both practical and profound - and applicable far beyond the football field. Packed with real-life examples from a storied season, this book offers wisdom and inspiration for taking control and turning setbacks into victories.
