Legacy: What the All Blacks can teach us about the business of life by James Kerr

One of the world’s most successful teams comes from one of the world’s smallest and most remote countries. The All Blacks, New Zealand’s national rugby union team, has a 77 per cent winning record in test match rugby, and is the only international men’s side to have secured more wins than losses against every opponent. Since their international debut in 1903, they have played test matches against 19 nations, of which 12 have never won a game against them. What makes this team so great? It has nothing to do with luck. Their reputation as champions hasn’t come about through physical strength or agility alone. In the book Legacy, James Kerr uncovers the strategies and lessons behind the success of the legendary All Blacks. Every lesson can be applied to every team, be it on the field, in the office or in the classroom. This book shares the importance of humility, working as a team, staying authentic and making sacrifices to achieve your goals. It describes how players on the world-stage stay in the ‘blue zone’ when the pressure is on and reiterates that true champions are forged in the practice ring, not on the field. Throughout the chapters, this inspiring book shares the steps to make a mark in any industry and leave a Legacy of your own. Take a look at the following summary for the key lessons contained in the publication.
