The Wisdom of Wooden is John Wooden’s final book, completed just weeks before his passing in June 2010. In it he shares his most treasured memories and never-before-seen photographs as he looks back on an extraordinary life on and off the court. Hailed by many as the greatest coach in the history of American sports, John Wooden is as famous for his personal philosophy as he is for his career achievements. He inspired, guided, and motivated generations of fans with his bestselling books on leadership, values, family, and the true meaning of success. Coach Wooden wrote his final book, The Wisdom of Wooden: My Century On and Off the Court, in the last months before his death. Filled with his most treasured memories and more than 100 photographs, many never-before seen, it captures a life spent teaching, guiding, and serving others. Starting with his father’s now-famous 7 Point Creed—including “Make Each Day Your Masterpiece,” “Help Others,” and “Be True to Yourself,”—Coach Wooden affirms the principles to true success that helped him become an All American at Purdue University, a winning coach at Indiana State University, and an iconic sports figure at UCLA. Yet anyone who knows John Wooden knows his record on the court was only part of the story. In The Wisdom of Wooden the legendary coach offers readers a rare glimpse not just behind the scenes but inside the man; not just on the court but in the huddles; not just his maxims but his poems, those he wrote and those he loved; not just the people he inspired, but the family, friends, and fans who inspired him; not just the lessons he taught but the lessons he learned; not just what was on his mind but what was in his heart. Ultimately it was the life he lived that served as a model for his greatest lesson of all: a deep commitment to family, friends, and faith—the bedrock values of the man we all called, “Coach.” Praise for John Wooden “The Wisdom of Wooden has given me the life that I have . . . Thanks, Coach, for your faith and patience.” —Bill Walton “The Wisdom of Wooden is a lifetime of Coach Wooden’s ideas on how to live life without sacrificing your moral principles. His life is a prime example of how this can be done--one that we can all learn from.” —Kareem Abdul-Jabbar “John Wooden sets an example for all of us by constantly striving to be the best in every aspect of his life. Throughout my life, I have found inspiration and direction in the Bible. Today, I also find inspiration and direction in the words of John Wooden.” —Tom Coughlin, Head Coach, New York Giants “One hundred years—what an amazing life. But here’s what's even more amazing about John Wooden and the timeless verities his life has embodied. One hundred years from now they will still be talking about his accomplishments and his approach.” —Bob Costas "There has never been a finer man in American sports than John Wooden, or a finer coach." --Sports Illustrated

Why does the story of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion touch us? Like all great entertainment, their journey resonates. We see ourselves in the characters and likewise wish we possessed the power, the brains, the heart, and the courage to make our own dreams come true. So what are your dreams? What do you want? Is it a promotion? Improving a relationship? Rescuing a child? Finding a new job? Saving a marriage? Getting a degree? Finding the love of your life? Making a difference in your community? This book will help you get whatever you consider worthwhile in life. Simply put, when you unleash the power of personal accountability it will energize you in lifealtering ways, giving you a concrete boost that enhances your ability to think, to withstand adversity, to generate confidence, and to increase your own natural emotional, mental, and intellectual strength. Roger Connors and Tom Smith know this because they’ve seen it work in their own lives and witnessed it in the lives of some of the most successful and influential people in the world. The authors first introduced this powerful accountability philosophy in the New York Times bestseller The Oz Principle. Since then, millions have come to know them as “The Oz Guys” and they have gone on to help leaders all over the world teach and apply the principles you’re about to learn. Principles that have generated billions of dollars of wealth—along with a host of even more important results. Devotees of The Oz Principle have brought lifesaving medications to market, created better education in community colleges, greatly surpassed charity fund-raising goals, and improved medical practices in battlefield hospitals. In The Wisdom of Oz, Connors and Smith present the practical and powerful principles of personal accountability in simple, down-to-earth terms that you can apply in your homes, schools, communities, churches, and volunteer groups. The book will help you strengthen family relationships, improve friendships, motivate children, increase value on the job, improve health and financial well-being, or achieve whatever it is you most desire. Drawing on engaging stories about those who have overcome great odds—including South African president Nelson Mandela, Polish WWII hero Irena Sendler, and everyday men and women—Connors and Smith demonstrate that by taking personal ownership of your goals and accepting responsibility for your performance, you also take control of your success. You will read stories about people just like you who learned to beat their struggles, like the New York area fisherman who fell off his lobster boat and was adrift at sea for twelve hours in the chilly Atlantic . . . but survived. You will learn the traits that allowed a college senior who landed flat on her face in a 600-meter race to jump up and win. Or a thirteen-year-old soccer player who moved from the bench to the starting lineup. You will discover that while no one will ever wave a wizard’s wand and magically solve all your problems, there is a way to experience the near magical impact of personal accountability.

Die Rolle unbewusster und vorbewusst-intuitiver Prozesse im Coaching unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung des Klienten

Ausgangspunkt dieses Bandes sind die Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaften und der Psychologie, dass Erleben und Verhalten maßgeblich durch unbewusste und vorbewusst-intuitive Prozesse bestimmt wird. Eine Studie von Turner (2010) hat die Relevanz unbewusster Prozesse im Coaching bestätigt, wenngleich in Deutschland (kognitive) Selbstreflexion als ein wesentliches Merkmal professionellen Handelns gilt. Alica Ryba untersucht in ihrer Dissertation die Rolle des Unbewussten/Vorbewussten im Coaching mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung des Klienten/der Klientin. Dazu analysiert sie die Begriffe des Unbewussten/Vorbewussten, Annahmen über Mechanismen der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung sowie die Zugänge zum und die Arbeit mit dem Unbewussten/Vorbewussten in den verschiedenen Psychotherapieansätzen. Folgende theoretische Schulen nimmt sie in den Fokus: tiefenpsychologische, hypnotherapeutische, verhaltenstherapeutische, humanistische, körpertherapeutische und systemische. Diese Theorien werden mit aktuellen neurowissenschaftlichen und psychologischen Erkenntnissen verglichen, wobei das neurobiologisch fundierte Vier-Ebenen-Modell der Persönlichkeit von Roth, Cierpka und Strüber ein wichtiges Referenzmodell bildet. Die Untersuchung leitet Implikationen der einzelnen Ansätze für das Coaching ab und identifiziert Faktoren, die entscheidend für die Persönlichkeitsentwicklung sind. Es wird deutlich, dass somatisch-vegetative Prozesse eine bedeutsame Rolle bei Veränderungen spielen, doch im Coaching findet der Körper bisher kaum Beachtung. In ihrem eigenen Coachingmodell berücksichtigt Alica Ryba diese Ergebnisse.
