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.

Exactly what I hoped for

Legacy puts forth a great balance of storytelling and lessons that are relevant to any sport or business that is trying to build a culture. It will work with kids or adults, and gave me lots of ideas for how I can help in my community. The listen was enjoyable too, and the reader well-chosen.

Good Book, Ok Narration

A nice, accessible, and concise book on practical leadership lessons. The narration can be distracting thanks to occasional mispronunciations and odd attempts at imitating accents, but overall it’s a decent listen.

I KNOW WHY WE WERE TOLD TO READ THIS

It was a great book about the principles of what makes an organization superior. These are principals that we are taught as Marines throughout our training.

Fantastic Listen and Lots of Takeaways

A great story with lots of useful information. He referenced many great coaches and even included a quote from Ken Kesey. He did mention about Greg Norman‘s collapse at the 1986 masters but he mistakenly said it was the 1966 masters. I’ll be going back to this audible from time to time.
