MANCHESTER United's Sir Alex Ferguson is undoubtedly the most successful manager in English football history, for much has been said about how he has transformed the club from the underachieving side of the 1970s and 1980s to the multiple trophy-winning team of today.

However, little attention has been given to the leadership qualities required to drive a team to accomplish such a feat. Instead, we often obsess over examples of bad managers, like Enron's Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling.

What we need to do now is to focus on leaders who can teach us positive lessons. As a management coach and Red Devils fan, I believe the "Sir Alex" way offers some simple yet powerful truths about helping managers and their teams score.
