Wiley & Sons Ltd
Learn to live and lead with enthusiasm and optimism, impact your team, and transform your culture
In Row the Boat, Minnesota Golden Gophers Head Coach P.J. Fleck and bestselling author Jon Gordon deliver an inspiring message about what you can achieve when you approach life with a never-give-up philosophy. The book shows you how to choose enthusiasm and optimism as your guiding lights instead of being defined by circumstances and events outside of your control.
Discover how to put the three key components of row the boat into practice in your life:
* The Oar: The energy. Only you can dictate whether your oar is in the water or whether you take it out and decide not to use it.
* The Boat: The sacrifice. The more you give, serve, and make your life about helping others, the better and more fulfilled your life will be, and the bigger your boat gets.
* The Compass: The direction. The vision you have for your life and the people you surround yourself with help create the dream of where you want to go.
Perfect for athletes, coaches, business leaders, and anyone else who hopes to squeeze a little more enjoyment and productivity out of life, Row the Boat will propel leaders, teams, and organizations to greater heights than they have ever reached before.
