Success in athletics is a lot more than gaining strength, speed, agility, and the particular skills of basketball, football, soccer or any other sport. Becoming a successful athlete means developing strong mental skills, too. These mental skills will help you every step of the way, for the rest of your life, in just about any profession you pursue. Lisa Leslie and Bridgette Chambers are great examples of having all the athletic abilities and the mental skills too!
Having known Lisa since she was a star high school athlete to becoming the one of the great women’s basketball players dominating the court and leading her teams to California state basketball titles, NCAA crowns, WNBA championships and Olympic gold medals, she is a long way from being finished. She took the focus, teamwork and drive for excellence that she learned as an athlete to become a successful role model, sports analyst, businesswoman, and motivational speaker. On top of all that, she has managed to be an amazing mom, a great wife, and a loving daughter.
Bridgette Chambers was also a great athlete first as a swimmer and water polo player and later became a talented soccer player in school and in the U.S. Army. She used her mental discipline in the business world to become a well-known corporate turnaround expert and successful CEO of several huge corporations.
Lisa and Bridgette are both impressive women but they are also really kind, caring people, who want to share what they’ve learned and help others to achieve.
From the Court to the Boardroom describes what it was like for both of them as young girls just realizing that they enjoyed competing in sports to success after their playing days. It explains how they applied those lessons to their business careers. The most important lesson in the book is that you don’t have to be a national champion or an Olympian for these lessons to apply. They share important skills on leadership, determination, teamwork, and striving for excellence. I’m confident the lessons in this book will work for you, too.
