The John R. Wooden Course is a professional leadership and character development program for schools, corporations, individuals and teams. It was designed based on the values, principles, life lessons and wisdom of legendary UCLA basketball coach and teacher John Robert Wooden.
The foundational elements of The Course are the core, ethical, exemplary, (25) character building behaviors defined on Coach Wooden's renowned Pyramid of Success. This course, along with Wooden inspired and approved diagnostic and sustainment tools, (Team Success Assessment, Individual Success Assessment, and Wooden's Wisdom), creates a development path leading to strong character, higher performance, and true success.
We describe this path as The Wooden Way, The Way of a great Coach, As thinker, example, teacher, leader and mentor.

Team Member Comments:
Ann Arbor Michigan Skyline high school athletic director and coaching staff come together for "Coaching Greatness" Day.
"As a high school athletic director, and leader of coaches, I would highly recommend the Wooden Course to any athletic leader who wants to inspire growth, instill greater purpose, and promote solidarity with his/her coaching staff. Not only are all of Coach Wooden's timeless values shared in the course through multiple forms of media, but Lynn Guerin's presentation has the power to inspire and set clear objectives for effective leadership. Our staff came away from this summer event as a closer group with a zeal and excitement for the upcoming school/sports year and a commitment to use Coach Wooden's principles in their daily approach to coaching."
