Literature on leadership often fails to include a clear connection between theory and practice. This book details characteristics and behaviors manifested by effective leaders and how their behavior was informed by leadership theory. This book specifically describes the leadership practices of football coaches as a way to illustrate the theory the author expounds, offering the reader examples of leadership behavior in the four leadership frames suggested by Bolman and Deal's situational leadership theory. This self-help book demonstrates how someone can become a very effective leader in both his personal life and his professional life.

Bob Palestini continues to excite educational leaders with his insightful approaches to educational leadership that help close the gap between theory and practice. His second book in his current leadership series demonstrates how the use of situational leadership theory by ten successful football coaches has contributed to their effectiveness. These same leadership principles can be applied to anyone's leadership behavior whether it is as a parent, a school principal, or business person. As a longtime colleague of Palestini's, I have seen these principles exemplified in his own leadership style. This book is sure to be a valuable addition to any leader's library! -- Terrance L. Furin
Palestini throws a touchdown pass by providing us with real-life leadership principles that can be applied to coaching, parenting and all levels of executive management. I recommend his book to all those interested in fine-tuning their leadership styles and for those preparing to be leaders in the future. -- George Stratts, high school principal, former championship football coach and member of the Pennsylvania Football Hall of Fame
Palestini's latest look on situational leadership theory as it applies to the leadership behavior of ten successful football coaches contains leadership insights that would be applicable to any leadership position, whether that be a parent, an educator or a CEO. As a longtime colleague, I have seen Palestini effectively utilize situational leadership theory in his own leadership practice. This book would make good reading for current leaders and those who aspire to be leaders. -- Joseph D'Angelo, dean, Haub School of Business, Saint Joseph's University
I have attended one of Palestini's live presentations on situational leadership theory and was impressed with how pertinent this theory is to our eternal quest for identifying a highly effective leadership style.

Palestini's practical approach to leadership, based on behavioral profiles of football coaches, provides valuable insights for leaders in all walks of life.
