John Wooden's legacy of leadership transcends athletics and spans generations. As a legendary coach, prolific author and inspiring speaker, he dedicated his life to motivating individuals to achieve their highest potential. Wooden instilled in others a sense of pride, a commitment to ethics and a respect for teamwork. These fundamental principles translate seamlessly from the sports arena to the realms of business, management and leadership. And they provide the cornerstone on which the John Wooden Global Leadership Program is built at UCLA Anderson.
In partnership with John Wooden's family, UCLA Anderson School of Management is proud to present the John Wooden Global Leadership Program. Each year, one exceptional leader is honored with this prestigious award for exemplary leadership and service to the community. Proceeds from the dinner fund $25,000 John Wooden Leadership Fellowships awarded to deserving UCLA Anderson students. The 2013 recipient will be Robert Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company.
