On December 10th, Tuttle Publishing releases the much-anticipated follow up to “Way of the Champion,” “Coaching With Heart: Taoist Wisdom to Inspire, Empower, and Lead in Sports & Life.” The book is written by Jerry Lynch, PhD, one of America’s most esteemed sport psychologists. As a follow-up to the Phil Jackson-endorsed, “Way of the Champion,” Jerry Lynch’s latest book explores the ways Taoism, Buddhism and Native American philosophy inform a winning strategy in sports.
Whereas “Way of the Champion” focused on the aspects at play in nurturing a successful athlete, “Coaching With Heart” expounds upon valuable lessons for coaches and leaders in sport.

“Coaching With Heart” is a provocative and practical game changer in the shifting landscape of athletics and life coaching. Readers are invited to awaken to established techniques that empower and inspire not only themselves, but also the players with whom they are building a relationship. Chapters discuss various themes, including the power of caring in HAVING LOVE IN YOUR HEART, to the magic of being stronger by being softer in SOFTER EFFORT, STRONG RESULT, to the positive effects of a culture of unity and cohesion in CULTURE OF WE NOT ME. Tao Coaching, where the Taoist virtues of respect, trust, compassion, belief, and integrity are also discussed.
