News & Opinion: Success Is A Choice Audio Excerpt

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 12:26 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

We thought this was a great choice as we are right in the middle of the NCAA basketball finals. This is an audio excerpt from Success is A Choice: Ten Steps to Overachieving In Business and Life by Rick Pitino with Bill Reynolds. This excerpt is Step Three - Always Be Positive. I chose this excerpt because he talks about Kentucky's 1996 NCAA championship and how he needed to change his approach to coaching players in the final stretch. mp3, 5:02, 5.8MB You can also find the softcover here
