Snippet from Book

Step One:
Discovering What's Possible?

Great coaches, like great leaders, are never satisfied with the status quo. As a hockey coach, I was eternally optimistic and continuously looked for opportunities to improve my coaching strategies and build a better team.

Management guru Tom Peters says there is no "final word." There is always a better way to do just about everything. Whatever your role— coach, manager, supervisor—that's a powerful starting point.

Over the summer, as I began envisioning how the team was going to look with the changes I had in mind, I thought about the possibilities. "There's always a better way," I reminded myself as I jotted some questions and ideas, including the following:

  • Is it possible to play a perfect hockey game—no mistakes, no penalties and every play is executed perfectly?
  • How could I better position the team captain? In what ways could I expand his role and responsibilities?
  • What could I do to get more fans to come out for our games?
  • What possibilities were there to recruit players from the European leagues?
  • In what ways could the role of assistant coach be redesigned?

From A Review

Paul Thornton has done it again! He has followed his extremely practical Best Leadership Advice I Ever Got with this insightful little gem of a leadership manual, a text that is, indeed, chock full of big ideas. His books more than deliver on the promise of their intriguing titles. I recommend Big Ideas to all leaders, no matter how many (or few) their followers.

James O'Toole, author of The Executive's Compass, Leading Change, and co-author (with Warren Bennis and Daniel Goleman) of Transparency: How Leaders Create a Culture of Candor


From The Author

I played hockey in high school, prep school and in college. It taught me valuable life lessons. In addition, it sparked my interest in management and leadership. I studied and observed what the top coaches did that made them successful. Big Leadership Ideas describes my journey from player to coach to leader.
