Legacy by James KerrWhy we recommend it:  Legacy by James Kerr comes highly recommended from the whole team at Athlete Assessments. Some books on leadership and culture can be dense reads you feel forced to slug through, Legacy is compelling reading. It is very easy to read in a day or over the weekend.  The pages are packed with insights, candid quotes, and irrefutable wisdom. Note the book is called ‘Legacy’ rather than any variation of ‘Winning’ or ‘Champions’. This really highlights the key theme of the book. The All Blacks have always worked to create a long-term successful cultural legacy. The book combines anecdotes from those directly involved in the All Blacks’ success, to quotes and stories from some of the most successful coaches and people involved in sport.

Book Overview:  In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr goes deep into the heart of one of the world’s most successful sporting teams, the legendary All Blacks of New Zealand, to reveal 15 powerful and practical lessons for leadership and business. Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields and asks: What are the secrets of success – sustained success? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure? How do you train to win at the highest level? What do you leave behind you after you’re gone? What will be your legacy? Champions do extra. They sweep the sheds. They follow the spearhead. They keep a blue head. They are good ancestors.
