The best man I’ve ever known is my father, Joshua Hugh Wooden. He was also my greatest teacher. What Dad taught me, and how he taught it, had a most profound impact on what I did professionally.
In style and substance, much of what I taught in 40 years as a leader and coach can be traced back in some manner to his own teaching, his own example back on our farm in Centerton, Indiana.
My father had a commonsense kind of wisdom. A man of few words, when Joshua Hugh Wooden said something, he really said something.
