Legendary coach John Wooden took the helm of a struggling UCLA Bruins basketball program in 1948. By the end of the season, they were conference champions. By the time of his retirement in 1975, the man they called "Coach" had led his teams to a record-breaking 10 national championships in just 12 years, establishing a legacy as one of the best coaches of all time.
While his success on the court is heavily celebrated, Wooden’s teachings extend far beyond the realm of sports. He brought an entire community together, inspired them with championships, and taught them how to master the fundamental skills that turn any dream into reality.
It was Coach Wooden who introduced the world to the Pyramid of Success, a roadmap for individual and team excellence, the same roadmap he used to build a legacy unmatched in the game of basketball.
Sports legends Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bobby Bowden, Joe Torre, Bill Walton, Dick Vitale, and others called him their teacher, mentor and friend. Global change-makers, movie stars, millionaires, and thought leaders gathered in his personal den seeking the ageless wisdom of this great teacher.
Discover the origins of success in your life as we discuss how Coach Wooden developed his pyramid, and how the dozens of champions you'll learn from during the course use the pyramid in their lives.
"Success is peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you're capable."

Coach Wooden discusses the foundation of the Pyramid of Success and talks about the importance of practice in building success.

"If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes."

The players and students who applied these qualities in their lives after college continued to experience similar levels of success. In this session, Coach explains the overall principles that comprise this tier of the Pyramid and discusses why they are so important.
"A leader's most powerful ally is his or her own example."

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

"Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights."

He lived the example. Learn how your character will communicate more clearly than anything you can try to teach.
"Discipline yourself, and others won't need to."
Coach Wooden had a simple approach to improving: if he could think of something that would bring about improvement in his players, his playbook or his life, he would do it.

Coach John Wooden developed his Pyramid of Success in response to what he experienced as a young high school English teacher in Indiana.
