(Here comes that word again.)
Linked to this blog is an extract from a book called the 'The Damned United', by David Pearce. But don't open the link yet.
The book is about Brian Clough, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever managers in English football. For those of you who don't know, one of his achievements was to take lowly Nottingham Forest from the second division (in old money) to European Cup Winners. Twice. (Eat your hearts out Ferguson, Wenger, Mourinho.)
Not surprisingly he's regarded as one of the greatest man mangers of all time. Someone from whom managers in any field might draw inspiration.
To learn how he dealt with a setback open the link. (But not if you're of a sensitive disposition.)
