John Wooden's Pyramid of Success

At the center of The John R. Wooden Course and Wooden’s Coaching Fundamentals is perhaps the greatest contribution Coach John Wooden left behind his renowned “Pyramid of Success.”

His 14 years of development work produced a powerful, insightful and effective blueprint. He precisely defined 25 behavioral characteristics for achieving personal and team success.

He designed, defined and tested a complete model. He combined uncommon insight with common sense and captured both brilliantly on one page. He put the Pyramid of Success to the test, over seven decades with thousands of people, across all walks of life in both professional and personal pursuits.

The results speak for themselves and the cumulative impact will stand the test of time.
