For forty years, Dean Smith coached the University of North Carolina basketball team with unsurpassed success. Now, in The Carolina Way, he explains his coaching philosophy and shows readers how to apply it to the leadership and team-building challenges they face in their own lives. In his wry, sensible, wise way, Coach Smith takes us through every aspect of his program, illustrating his insights with vivid stories. Accompanying each of Coach Smith’s major points is a “Player Perspective” from a former North Carolina basketball star and an in-depth “Business Perspective” from Gerald D. Bell, a world-renowned leadership consultant and a professor at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. The keystones of Coach Smith’s coaching philosophy are widely applicable and centrally relevant to building successful teams of any kind.

"Coach taught me the game....He's like a second father to me." —Michael Jordan

"Dean Smith epitomizes what a coach can be-teacher, counselor, mentor, example, friend." —Bill Bradley

"He's a better coach of basketball than anyone else." —John Wooden

"To say that much of what I learned as a player from Dean Smith is directly applicable to the business community would be an understatement. Everything I learned during my stay at North Carolina has helped me be a better manager. To this day I rely on principles taught on and off the basketball court by Dean Smith to help me be more effective. Honesty, integrity, discipline, practice, and training certainly are the cornerstones to build from. If you care for your employees the way Coach Smith cared for us, success is a natural byproduct." —Mitch Kupchak, General Manager, Los Angeles Lakers

"There were a few truly great college coaches in twentieth-century America, and Dean Smith is one of those. In my mind, Coach Smith represents everything good about intercollegiate athletics. Call it what you want: the Carolina Way, the Smith Way, the Right Way—it’s about the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Dean Smith is much more than a great coach. He is a great leader, a man of conviction, integrity, and toughness. If you’re in a leadership position or aspire to one, The Carolina Way is a must read." —Lloyd H. Carr, Head Football Coach, the University of Michigan

"Dean Smith is one of the greatest coaches of all time and I was pleased to have the opportunity to read of the leadership principles that contributed to his success. The Carolina Way also includes terrific vignettes from his former players, further illustrating Dean’s powerful impact on their lives and how he was able to encourage his players to perform at their personal best." —Congressman Tom Osborne, former Head Football Coach, the University of Nebraska

"The Carolina Way provides an invaluable primer on good leadership techniques and, if the ‘proof is in the pudding,’ then there is no doubt that Dean Smith’s way works. My com pany and I had the benefit of hiring a number of Dean’s players from Phil Ford to Pete Budko. All of them were winners—ambitious, energetic, loyal team players. He never sent us a bad one." —Hugh L. McColl Jr., Chairman of the Board and CEO (retired), The Bank of America

"I have had the great privilege of sharing a fair portion of my life with William Friday, the president of the University of North Carolina, during much of the Dean Smith era. As a result, I have learned what a blessing Dean Smith was to the integrity of basketball in a collegiate setting. I would highly recommend The Carolina Way to anyone in pursuit of excellence with integrity." —Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus, the University of Notre Dame

5.0 von 5 Sternen CEO's, President's, VP's - Start your reading 5. März 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've heard Jerry Bell speak before, so I was thrilled to see him collaborate with Dean Smith on this book. Bell frequently uses words like caring, honesty, integrity, and discipline on his lectures on leadership and it's obvious from reading the book that these were the cornerstones of Coach Smith's teams. I wish more business leaders would understand that there is a correlation between investing in their people and sustained success. So many companies look at employees as disposable commodities, so it's refreshing to hear two men who have achieved so much in their careers say that it starts with genuine care for your people. Smith's philosophy, though simple in word, is truly applicable to the business arena because it promotes thinking intelligently, working extremely hard, and a committment to a greater whole than just oneself. That approach, combined with the real concern for each and every member of his program, created the most successful coaching career in college basketball history. If more CEO's would adopt these principles in their companies, then their work environments would improve, their employees would be more reciprocal in their committment, and bottom lines would increase.
Kudos to Bell and Smith for a thoughtful book with an important message - good guys do win!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great!, if you're a Carolina fan...terrific if you're not! 11. Mai 2004
Von Thomas Del Corro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
On the way to a conference in New Orleans, my flight from Raleigh to Charlotte was cancelled due to mechanical problems, and I was booked on a flight to D.C. As I boarded the plane with "The Carolina Way" under my arm, a gentleman seated at the front of the plane asked how I was enjoying the book. I explained that I had not yet started the book, so I could not give an answer. The gentleman followed me to my seat and introduced himself as Dr. Gerald Bell, the co-author of "The Carolina Way". Myself a Carolina fan, I was pleased to meet Dr. Bell, as he spent several minutes talking about Coach Smith, whom I have admired for over forty years, and the UNC basketball program, which is presently undergoing a much needed resurgence under Coach Roy Williams. Dr. Bell's contributions to the book tie Coach Smith's leadership philosophy to practical business applications by relating wonderful anecdotal references from Carolina's storied history to today's business situations. Surely, Coach Smith, given his ability to recruit top players, has been criticized by many for his failure to win NCAA championships in the manner of Coach John Wooden at UCLA, but winning two NCAA championships, winning at a consistency high level unmatched by any program without violating strict NCAA rules, and coaching top players that graduated at a +90% rate and have gone on to be successes in their chosen professions underscore the unique successes of Coach Smith's "system". Teamwork, integrity, loyalty, and hard work, are the cornerstones of the Carolina Way, and anyone in the position of managing, leading, or molding young people today would benefit from reading this book, corny as it is at times. This book is not just for Carolina basketball fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ignore the delusional "Grifterbob" clown... 13. April 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's par for the course, but the slime still manage to advertise their stupidity in the face of excellence.
A leadership book that's one of a kind, missing the redundancy so prevalent in so many leadership books. The fundamentals are broken down into sections, such as:
Part Three:
Chapter 11: Teamwork
Chapter 12: Defining and Understanding Our Roles
Chapter 13: Why Unselfishness Works
Chapter 14: Team-Building Techniques
An excellent read, well off of the typical mundane management path that we've all seen and heard too many times.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is why we love and miss Dean Smith on the Sidelines! 23. Januar 2005
Von Woody White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A year or so after Dean Smith's retirement from coaching the Tarheels, I was waiting on a connection flight from Charlotte and noticed a man sitting alone in the corner, fartherest away from the ramp. He had his back to me, but he looked strangely familiar. I casually got up, walked closer to determine if this was someone I knew and whether or not I should speak. About 15 feet from his seat, I noticed that it was the Dean, sitting alone, with a pen and a yellow legal pad, diagramming plays all by himself. It sounds corny, but it happened and made an indelible impression on me. After all those years, and wins - more than anyone else in college basketball history - the notion that he still had more to learn, that in 35 years, he had not already diagrammed ever possible play, was incomprehensible to me. I wanted to say hello and tell my children later in life that I had met him, but I did not disturb him. Our plane arrived, we boarded, and he walked alone to his seat. I never met him. But I feel like I already knew him having watched him from my baby crib, up to the day he retired.

And reading "The Carolina Way" brought back many memories and reminded me of not only why I am a Carolina Fan but also why he commands such deep respect and admiration. He succedded the right way, never cutting corners, and believing in a system that was based on working hard, working together and being smart. You do NOT have to be a Carolina fan to enjoy and love this book. But if you are, you won' be disappointed, either!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Rimmed Out 27. März 2011
Von David Holoman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Carolina fans will enjoy hearing from Coach Smith; he discusses all aspects of the Carolina basketball program, other than Xs and Os. Smith is generous with the program's history as well as his own, and it is wonderful to hear an icon of integrity and doing things right speak up. Additionally, there a few dozen topical reminiscences by past players; it is good to hear from them as well.

There is a business aspect of the book; after Coach Smith has held forth on a given topic (Team-building Techniques, e.g.), the reins are turned over to a business process expert (Gerald Bell) to tie the coach's basketball experiences to the business world. While there are a number of useful lessons to be learned, I thought this aspect of the book was a good bit less successful. The business advice to me seemed to be focused on a fairly narrow segment of the business world, and that is the big corporate segment where everyone is in a huge organization with a big teams, managers above and below, and apparently a budget for periodic self-inspection and retreat.. I know that model fits a lot of people, but it misses a whole bunch too. The practical advice had valuable moments but depended greatly on making a list of 10 things to do each quarter, three things to focus on this week, 9 points to emphasize this year, and so on. There would need to be a list of lists, for sure.

I will retain this book for reference, but 3 stars is all I can manage.
