Remarkable lessons in leadership and teambuilding from one of the greatest college football coaches of our timeIn only thirteen years as a head football coach, and Ohio State, Florida, Urban Meyer has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of his sport, first at Bowling Green and then at Utah, with three national championships and a cumulative record of 142 wins and only 26 losses.

When he returned to the sport in 2012 as the head  coach at Ohio State, the school he grew up rooting for, Meyer did so with a renewed sense of the deeper purpose of his work and a profound commitment to life balance that had previously been lacking. Despite winning two national championships at florida in only six seasons, Meyer stepped back from the game at the end of the 2010 season, amid health concerns and a growing awareness that his almost maniacal pursuit of perfection was distorting his priorities, distancing him from his family and taking him away from the reasons he wanted to coach in the first place.
