"Andy Hill and Bill Kane provide powerful insights into the true development of a leader.  Andy's personal story of Coach John Wooden's unparalled success as history's most successful coach adds dimensions that touch critical issues about the human need for direction, connection, and meaningful purpose - core aspects of leadership.  Bill's ability to frame Coach Wooden's pedagogic genius in terms of  organizational development  and practical principles offers attendees a way to take action and lead -- quickly, without hurrying.  I now have an enduring understanding of what it takes to be a leader in the best way possible - the Wooden Way.  Thank you Andy and Bill!"

"CMD is the executive education arm of Rutgers University. We decided to offer the program for one of our residential advanced leadership classes, and the session has since become an integral part of our curriculum. It reinforces and ties together so many of the leadership principles that we teach throughout the week, and is definitely a highlight of the entire program. The subject is approached with obvious conviction, humor, and insight. You don't need to be a sports fan to get a lot out of it. I can recommend this program whole-heartedly, and sincerely."
