Publisher's Summary

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.

In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.

So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?

powerful window into building a culture of success

really enjoyed this step-by-step approach to building a high performing culture. AB were known as the best team in the world that could never win the big game (RWC) final. Powerful examination of shifting this challenge, and how the players bought in.

One aspect of this audiobook that drove me nuts was how the narrator used a 'goofy' voice when he was quoting others.

Great content marred by the terrible attempts at accents in the narration

This is a great book. However, listening to the narrator butchering several accents (his “impression” of Archbishop Tutu was an attempt at GBH on the ears) makes it extremely difficult to listen to. Luckily I have a copy of the book I can read that helps. Note to the narrator. You are not good at accents (and that is the kindest I can be). Narration of world class content does not require you to be. Please remember that next time, the narration is not about you, it’s about the content. Your own accent is perfectly lovely. Please read the whole book in that accent.

Are you willing to sweep the shed?

The tying together of the rich Māori culture, the storied history of the All Blacks to a country that embraces both; all with the expectation to succeed! to win! With the simple principle of being better than you are now. Powerful. Not enough people will embrace it.

Not as actionable as I wished

My feeling is the author could've just as well titled this book "50 lessons for leadership" or even "5 lessons for leadership," but I'm not sure how he settled on 15. I say that because it's difficult to tell which are the must-haves vs the nice-to-haves, so at certain points of the audiobook it reads like a collection of observations without any actionable items. Even if we assume all 15 lessons are critical to a winning organization, the author fails to tell you who is responsible for doing what exactly. That is, X is the responsibility of the coaches, Y the responsibility of the captain(s), Z the players, etc. As we say in my line of work: if everyone is responsible, then no one is responsible. To that end I would've liked to hear more commentary from the players and coaches themselves, but the reader only really gets snippets here and there. Overall it's a decent piece of work for any casual fans of the All Blacks. But if you're trying to read this as a field guide, I would advise you to add what sounds useful to your toolbelt, and try not to stress too much about everything else in this book.

Wonderful, but spoiled

This is an amazing book but is irrevocably damaged by the choice if narrator.
If te reo Māori is in a story, it needs to be pronounced correctly.
No disrespect to the narrator, but his pronunciation made it really hard for me to listen past it. It detracted from the story … big time. I would not recommend the audiobook to anyone because of that, yet would recommend the hard copy,
