From the CEO of the top wholesale mortgage lender in the country comes this fascinating analysis of the ways sports leadership translates into professional life
Before he became president and CEO of United Wholesale Mortgage and took his company to the top of the game nationally, Mat Ishbia was a member of Tom Izzo’s 2000 Michigan State national championship basketball team. More specifically, he was the guy at the end of the bench. But as Ishbia likes to say, “You don’t have to be a captain to be a leader.”
Running the Corporate Offense is packed with this and other learned principles for smart, empathetic leadership based on teamwork. Ishbia shares his personal strategies and tips, such as “no-meeting Thursdays,” as well as anecdotes from his playing days in East Lansing, demonstrating the universality of these practical approaches.
This is an essential, accessible volume which proves that great leadership truly translates from the bench to the boardroom.
