Every now and then you get a comment from someone you respect that takes your breath away.

Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus from the MIT Sloan School of Management, is one of the world’s experts on leadership, team-building, and management psychology.  He has published fourteen books in these fields, including Helping, Process Consultation Revisited, Organizational Culture and Leadership.

He recently read Goal Play! and sent me this note, which I reprint with his permission:

I think your book is one of the best leadership books I have ever read.  I agree with the lessons but, more important, I love the presentation around the concrete stories of coaching girl’s soccer.  That brings it all home better.

Thanks, Ed!  Your opinion means the world to me.
