Former Massachusetts Governor and U.S. Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney lists The Business of Winning among his favorite books on his personal web page.
It was over a decade ago that Robert Evangelista became coach of the Detroit Rockies, a hockey team comprised of inner-city Detroit teenagers. Together, they defied the prejudices and skepticism of their critics, as well as the incredible, underdog odds, to become the first all-black hockey team to win the Can-Am Challenge Cup in Lake Placid, NY.
As he coached the Rockies to success, Mr. Evangelista observed that many of the strategies and tactics behind winning teamwork in sports could be applied to his own workplace. He began studying the philosophies and techniques of other successful coaches, as well as his own. Two years of research led to the development of a comprehensive methodology to help people find success outside of the locker room and inside the boardroom. Soon, his lessons were applied at General Motors, leading to astounding results and ensuing personal success. His teachings are focused primarily on active leadership -- the art of having a vision and actually making it a reality.
Mr. Evangelista presented this winning strategy in his first management book, The Business of Winning: A Manager's Guide to Building a Championship Team at Work, published in 2001. The book received critical acclaim upon publication and is now widely read, published in 27 countries. The award-winning book was also a finalist for Business Book of the Year (Independent Publishers Magazine). Evangelista's writings have since been featured in countless magazines and newspapers worldwide.
