After reading, I truly attest It is a valuable manual for a manager, a professional, or a sports person etc., who seek to excel, to win, to lead teams, to be successful and to repeat the process being successful. Also the book covers the defining qualities of a leader, the importance of being relevant in the dynamically changing work environment so as not to fade into oblivion, the importance of team building and how best it could be achieved. The importance of having goals and ways to achieve them and to quote from the authors on Goals, ‘Goals should be out of reach but never out of sight' and 'Breaking down goals into short term achievables allows you to cater to the immediate without losing focus on where you are headed'. This I see to be true as many GREAT ACHIEVERS have demonstrated it in their life.
Most importantly, the preference between Talent Vs Attitude has been dealt throughout the book, as might you have guessed, Attitude takes precedence over Talent. One of the example cited is the rebuilding of the Australian team under Border’s captaincy when cricketers were chosen based on their attitude rather than on their skill set.
Finally, even if someone feels some crucial step or rung are not covered in the book, which I don’t think it is, can truly benefit by implementing the ideas mentioned in the book. The authors have substantiated their comments with examples not only from cricket but from variety of other sports and at the same time from other business streams. Just as the authors mention at the very beginning of the book that ‘the formula for winning remains the same whether you a sportsman, a musician, a financial planner, a pharmaceutical salesman or a housewife’, this book is for everybody. Read it to Benefit from it. Well done Anita and Harsha Bhogle.
Wiki definition of Sledging
Sledging is a term used in cricket to describe the practice whereby some players seek to gain an advantage by insulting or verbally intimidating the opposing player.
However, the book was a disaster. It was too obvious, shallow and kept leaning back to easy cricketing analogies or comparisons.
One gets the feel that this was a hurried attempt (haven't read The Winning Way 1.0) and something that I didn't expect Harsha to deliver.
For a man who I hold in great regard for his ability to communicate this book was a disappointment to say the least !
