At the heart of each successful leader, you will find unshakable principles, core values, driving motivations, and inspiring perspectives. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, built on the values of integrity, team work, serving, and excellence, has asked forty leaders to share their key insights on what makes the greatest leader ever and how they live out those principles on the field, in the arena, in the classroom, and at home. Coaches, athletes, sports fans, and aspiring leaders will find motivation on every page, in addition to time-tested principles of leadership based on biblical values. And it answers the question: Who is the greatest leader ever? Contributors include Kurt Warner, Lance Berkman, Tom Osborne, Andy Pettitte, Jane Albright, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and others. It also features leadership success stories about the late John Wooden and Tom Landry, and an inspiring challenge from FCA president, and former NFL coach Les Steckel.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has challenged athletes and coaches to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
