Sullivan: ‘The Fisherman’ offers life advice for all leaders

As a leader in our newsroom, wishful reader of all books and all-things-sports enthusiast, I am always intrigued to read a book written about leadership by a coach.

When I found out Dave Steckel, head coach of Missouri State’s football team, wrote a book, I was automatically more interested.

Dave Steckel, the coach who tends to use as few words as possible to get his point across, wrote a book. I had to read it.

And that’s what I did. I spent a Saturday sitting at one of my favorite coffee shops reading. And annotating. And rereading.
