For forty years, Dean Smith coached the University of North Carolina basketball team with unsurpassed success. Now, in The Carolina Way, he explains his coaching philosophy and shows readers how to apply it to the leadership and team-building challenges they face in their own lives. In his wry, sensible, wise way, Coach Smith takes us through every aspect of his program, illustrating his insights with vivid stories. Accompanying each of Coach Smiths major points is a Player Perspective from a former North Carolina basketball star and an in-depth Business Perspective from Gerald D. Bell, a world-renowned leadership consultant and a professor at UNCs Kenan-Flagler Business School. The keystones of Coach Smiths coaching philosophy are widely applicable and centrally relevant to building successful teams of any kind.
