Mimi Donaldson on Necessary Roughness
New Rules for the Contact Sport of Life
Prevailing in challenging times is not a question of ability – people are able.
Success hinges on opportunity and intention.
Opportunity and intention are what football is all about.
Over the years, many football coaches have written books that teach life lessons from the game. Sports figures and sports newscasters have written books teaching leadership lessons. An NFL wife wrote a book as a fan and insider of the professional league. But until now, there has never been a funny and profound take from a lifelong football fan with a team building background. Mimi Donaldson is about to change that.
Women have gained a great deal at home and at work. We are assertive, but now it’s time to step up the game. No longer are we expected to play nice all the time. Sometimes, a certain roughness is necessary: we need to talk straight, stand our ground, say no, and negotiate everything. As in football, we need to hunker down and get our knuckles in the dirt.
In this laugh-out-loud, insightful and practical book, you’ll discover a new appreciation of football strategies. After all, they are the same strategies you have used to get ahead in business and be successful in your personal relationships. In this female-friendly book, Mimi shares the secrets of capitalizing on opportunity and intention, so you can become the ultimate coach for yourself and your team. Then nothing will stand in the way of your win.
