What people are saying about Jamy Bechler and The Leadership Playbook

Professional Basketball Player

Vee Young

"When I played for Coach Bechler, he strongly valued leadership. It is very important at every level and it should be taught daily. The teams most likely to succeed are those that have good leadership skills and everyone is held accountable for their actions. Leadership will bring success on and off the court so lead wherever you may go because it can be quite contagious!"

Basketball Parent

Sailaja Blackmon

"Having a husband that coaches and three sons that play basketball, I can't emphasize enough how much leadership matters to a team. Jamy has some great insights that could help your son or daughter better develop their leadership skills."

College Athletic Director

Rusty Kennedy

"Jamy Bechler is an expert in the field of Leadership. His real world, hands-on solutions created through years of diligent work as a coach, mentor and athletic administrator are beneficial to organizations of all size and type."

WNBA Coach of the Year

Dan Hughes

"When the Storm went from a series of losing seasons to winning the World Championship, I saw first-hand how much intangibles can impact a team. There were certainly players with amazing talent on the team but it was inspiring to watch them come together as a team and embrace a culture of positive leadership. They communicated, supported, encouraged, and made each other better. No matter your team's level or talent, they could benefit from the insights that Jamy provides in building a team and getting the most out of your players."

College Recruiting Expert

Dan Tudor

"As someone who works with college athletic departments and coaches around the country, I know the type of authors and speakers they trust and look to for leadership skills, and Jamy Bechler is in that category. His coaching background is the perfect foundation for the advice he is giving to athletes, their parents, and the coaches who coach them. Coach Bechler is a go-to resource for leadership. I definitely recommend his book to coaches."

Soccer Parent

Lori Eltzroth

"Building a foundation for leadership skills at an early age is critical to long-term success in athletics, work and life in general. Coach Bechler taught my daughter the importance of developing the attitude of a leader through multiple opportunities and training at Marion High School. The skills that she has acquired and the appreciation she has for leadership in any life activity has inspired my 5-sport, honor student athlete to raise the bar and command more from herself and those around her. Thank you Coach Bechler."

National High School Coach of the Year

Chad Hibdon

"As we went through our journey of a state and national championship season, we continued to reflect on Coach Bechler’s blueprint for success. Our players gained the leadership qualities that are necessary to be a championship team."

College Academic Dean

Shawn Silman

"Coach Bechler embodies the qualities of an exceptional leader. He has a passion to share his message with those who want to grow as leaders. This book provides a clear road map for anyone who has the desire to broaden the impact they have on their team or organization. I have no doubt that this book can help all students gain a better understanding of what being a true leader is all about."

College Basketball Coach

Reed Sutton

"I have known Jamy as a competing conference coach, a friend, and now as one who helps elevates our program. I much prefer him as an ally than as an opponent! Our team studied "The Leadership Playbook" for the 2017-18 season and it served as a catalyst as we over-achieved, rattling off 9 wins to finish the regular season. We consequently qualified for the National Tournament after bouncing back and holding each other accountable from consecutive 41 and 29 point losses in late January of that season. I am hungry to gobble up everything Jamy has to share as I know it will be relevant to our team in our quest to connect with each other and WIN!"

Host of the Sports Spectrum

Jason Romano

"It seems like now more than ever, there is a need for positive leadership and the intentional development of our youth. Sports isn’t just about X’s and O’s and Jamy provides a blueprint for how student-athletes can reach their potential regardless of their status or talent level."
