JIMMY IS UNEMPLOYED AND DIRECTIONLESS, and has been roped into coaching the local junior soccer team. Peter is a struggling small businessman, trying to grow his business and find time for his family. Newly single soccer mum Elizabeth is looking for a way to stay at home, earn an income and still have time to raise her son. David is a career high-flyer on the verge of crashing and burning; his approach to leadership has put his career under threat, and makes him a poor role model for his son.

Scores on the Board brings together these engaging characters through the journey of an under 11s soccer team -- the Southside Vikings. Using the 5-part Scores on the BoardTM system, Jimmy transforms the Vikings from the easybeats of the competition into an enthusiastic and committed team of rapidly improving players. Along the way, Jimmy and parents Peter, Elizabeth and David also learn how to transform their careers and perspectives on life.

Incorporating the latest research from Harvard Business School, the field of neuroscience and practices from some of the world's most successful professional sports and business teams, Scores on the BoardTM is a simple, effective system that delivers dramatic results when applied to pursuing goals in personal development, team-building or business management.

This fast-paced, entertaining story will have you cheering for the Southside Vikings and their inspiring vision of what it means to be a winner -- regardless of what the scoreboard says. With this game plan, Scores on the BoardTM may be the best investment you ever make.
