Listen to the full interview of Lynn Guerin with Adam Torres on Mission Matters Business Podcast.
Drawing on a 40-year career in consulting, training, coaching and performance development, Lynn shares the transformative lessons he learned from Coach Wooden on what it takes to be a great Head Coach of your own life and the wonderful opportunity, responsibility and privilege it is to teach, coach and serve others. Lynn was inspired to apply Coach Wooden’s principles, the Pyramid of Success behavior model, and his coaching blueprint to his own life. He was even more determined to find a way to share these powerful concepts with a world that Lynn believes needs Coach Wooden more than ever.
The Mission Begins
Lynn’s winning a competitive bid to help launch the University of Toyota and create a curriculum, management development process, and tools for corporate managers and a nationwide dealer network, kicked off the opportunity to work with Coach Wooden and his family. Two years of impactful corporate coaching, team development, and leadership development projects with Coach Wooden spawned the vision of The John R Wooden Course.
John Wooden appreciated the idea and vision but, at 86, felt it was a little late to start a new business venture. One year later, when Coach Wooden and Lynn were working on a Nissan project for building a championship team, Coach Wooden changed his mind on building the course. Lynn shares, “It was a handshake agreement that cemented our partnership for the next 10 years!”
The Pyramid of Success
Lynn explains the critical importance and the relevance of human performance behavior. He describes The Pyramid of Success as the most complete model--a blueprint, a one-page masters degree in high-performance and high-character behavior. Lynn shares how it took 14 years for Coach Wooden to formulate the Pyramid of Success and how he spent his next seven decades following its principles.
