Description

Lessons on leadership and team building from Ohio State's head football coach, drawing heavily on the 2014 season and his team's remarkable run to the championship in the face of adversity.

Since he took over at Bowling Green 14 years ago, Urban Frank Meyer III has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of college football. With three national championships and a record of 142-26, he has achieved remarkable results with many teams. But it is Meyer's recent work at The Ohio State University that has elevated him into the realm of such iconic coaching names as Paul (Bear) Bryant, Knute Rockne, and OSU's own Woody Hayes.

Never was that work more successful than in the 2014 season, which ended with Meyer's Buckeyes capturing the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship with a 42-20 victory over Oregon. That the triumph came with a third-string quarterback at the helm - and after OSU had suffered a brutal early season loss and endured the tragic loss of a teammate - only made the achievement that much more extraordinary.

How did Ohio State, a school many thought did not even deserve to be in the playoffs, end up at the summit of college football? In Above the Line, Urban Meyer answers this question and many more. Pulling back the curtain on the high-profile, high-pressure world he operates in, he offers listeners a groundbreaking game plan for creating a culture of success that engages and inspires the people around them - the very game plan he followed every day in the Buckeyes' historic 2014 season.

A student of psychology long before he became a coach, Meyer believes that trust is the bedrock of great achievements and healthy relationships and explains how to build it, step by step - whether in a team, a family, or a Fortune 500 company.

A must read for all coaches/leaders!

This book has wonderful insight and tools to help coaches/leaders consider new approaches to getting the most of the people you lead.

Urban Meyer uses a lot of the teachings from motivational speaker, Tim Kight, who runs a podcast called F3 (Focus 3) which I also recommend.

Great for any coach at any level

The concepts are common denominators no matter the sport or level. It's an excellent combination of philosophies and specific stories/anecdotes that further explain why Coach Meyer has been successful everywhere he's been. I took away specific, useful ideas to apply to the teams I coach.

Football Coach

As a football coach, this resonates deeply with me because I want to be a head coach one day. The familiarity and parallels he gave from building unit cohesion to reacting to your situation with character are all things I’ve learned but Urban just reinforced those and provided great depth, detail and knowledge as an aspiring head coach. Great read and must have.

Great book

Short, to the point leadership skills. The book is full of how to moments and is lacking the typical leadership talking points. This is a how to book, not a leadership theory book.

great blueprint to reality & success

I'm a Buckeye graduate, so this book was easy to consume and I know all the players. The simplestic truth of E + R = O is powerful. Quality material for the management of any professional or personal environment.
