A Powerful Leadership Parable for Team Success                  


The men’s basketball team from a small private high school finds itself struggling through a dreary season, when their coach is called away to attend to a family member’s illness.

Enter a wise and mysterious janitor, who not only accepts the reins of leadership for the team during that absence, but soon becomes a mentor to the team, especially to a talented young man named Matthew, who is essentially raising himself after he and his father moved into town…

Through a series of five lessons woven into the frustrations and excitement of the season, the janitor shares with Matthew his wisdom on team leadership that corresponds to each finger in a fist, and helps the team to accomplish their goals and become leaders themselves.

This is a compelling story that illustrates how ONE PERSON can influence and lead a TEAM!
