Publisher's Summary

Since joining the Yankees in 1996, Joe Torre has quickly reestablished the team as one of the great success stories in all of professional sports. But Torre has not only shown his outstanding managerial talents by leading the Yankees to two championships in three years. He's also survived the pressure-cooker of big-market media, established a calm, effective working relationship with George Steinbrenner, and cultivated clubhouse harmony on a team packed with distinct personalities. That harmony, together with Torre's emphasis on steadiness, optimism, serenity, mutual respect and responsibility, paved the way for his team's record-shattering 125-win season and 1998 World Series sweep.
In Joe Torre's Ground Rules for Winners, the Yankee manager reveals the twelve keys to his phenomenally successful management philosophy -- keys directly applicable to business and to life. Drawing from his years of experience in the corporate microcosm that is professional baseball. Torre shares his wisdom of the universal concerns of managers -- handling tough bosses, dealing with both setbacks and success, earning the trust and respect of your team players and bringing together a diverse group of individuals into a cohesive unit with a willingness to make the sacrifices necessary to win. Joe Torre's Ground Rules for Winners is a comprehensive guide to the management techniques that Torre has refined, illustrating his methods with vivid, colorful stories from his years in professional baseball.
Torre's invaluable insights will provide listeners with the tools they need to develop a winning outlook, and to get the most out of themselves and their colleagues, whether in sports, business, or life.

Chief Baseball Officer's stories were excellent!

I really enjoyed hearing "the story behind the story" of all those games I remember watching!
