GREATNESS is a motivational book whose target audience is found in business and self-help. It is a life book, aimed at inspiring others to achieve their personal and professional best. Opening with an in-depth discussion of the nature of Greatness-what it is, what it is not, and why it is worth pursing-each subsequent chapter of the book consists of a detailed story illustrating one aspect of Greatness with examples from the sports greats that Don has interviewed over the years. This will be followed by a discussion and other related examples. There are also practical tips and plans for assisting the reader in implementing new habits, routines, practices, and philosophies of Greatness into his or her daily life. As each characteristic is outlined, the reader is challenged to look for areas in his or her professional and personal lives that can be improved by embracing these lessons. As Don often says during his speeches, "Though these characteristics are culled from some of the greatest winners in sports, not a single one requires you to be able to touch your toes! These iconic figures in sports have provided a classroom for us to learn about their pursuit of Greatness. You don't have to be good at sports - heck, you don't even have to like sports - to benefit from their lessons." It is the strong belief of those who Don has talked to over the years that greatness is available to all of us. Not in the same way or on the same field, mind you. But we all have the capacity to achieve greatness if we'll give the same dedication to these characteristics as do the winners presented and interviewed in GREATNESS.

These lessons weren’t in advanced mathematics or the secrets of the stock market. They were quite straightforward, in fact, for Rigsby’s father never made it through third grade.

Join Rigsby as he dusts off time-tested beliefs and finds brilliantly simple answers to modern society’s questions. In a magnificent testament to the “Greatest Generation” which gave so much and asked so little in return, Lessons from a Third Grade Dropout will challenge you while reigniting your passion to lead a truly fulfilling life.

You Are the Team is a book that will easily and dramatically improve the way your team works together by literally changing the heart and mind of every member of your team. It's a book for you, your team and entire organization. Many leaders struggle with getting members of their team to help and assist each other; to be direct, candid and respectful in their communication; to actively participate in meetings-providing ideas and passionately discussing important topics; to trust each other; to stop engaging in negative talk and even gossip; and to take accountability for their job and performance... to name just a few. You Are the Team combats the "Teammate Me Culture," which is when members of the team care more about their own needs than the team's needs. It inspires teammates to: *Serve each other *Put others and the team first *Tell the truth and be transparent *Keep commitments *Be direct and honest in discussions *Take accountability *Learn from mistakes *Seek honest feedback from teammates *Improve personal gratitude *Refrain from negativity and gossip *Compliment teammates more frequently *Celebrate teammates successes *Extend more kindness *Seek to understand teammates first before reacting *Demonstrate greater empathy towards teammates *Get it done and then some *Improve personal focus on goals *Bring solutions, not problems *Invest in personal development *Inspire and lead Would you agree that the above actions improve teamwork? Could your team improve by teammates implementing even just a couple of these concepts? You Are the Team is both engaging and practical. Author Michael Rogers uses a variety of entertaining stories to highlight the concepts in the book. Introspective questions are at the end of each section to help teammates reflect on how they are currently applying each of the important team concepts. The end of the book includes an assessment with 27 questions to gauge the overall effectiveness of teammates. Becoming a successful team begins with teammates who want to provide more value than they receive. You Are the Team was written to help members of teams understand the value they bring. Order a copy for you, for your team, for your entire organization. Michael has over 20 years of experience working with teams in business, sports, and a variety of volunteer organizations. One common theme in his consulting work has been that the best teams are made up of teammates who are committed to and invested in their team and its outcomes. He has found, without exception, that teams consisting of teammates who regularly practice his 6 B's of selflessness, trustworthiness, humbleness, positivity, respectfulness, and greatness achieve extraordinary teamwork. When Michael sat down to write You Are the Team, he wanted to write a book that could be easily understood by anyone reading it, a book that was inspiring-even life changing, a book that was engaging and a book that could be quickly applied by every member of the team. Many are finding that he did just that. Are you a leader who wishes you could get your team to work together better? Are you a leader who needs to boost results? Are you a leader who wishes your team cared more about their work and the outcomes of the team? You Are the Team is that one book that will change your team and organization long term.
