Beyond the Lines Shares Secrets for Success from America’s Longest Winning High School Sports Coach

Motivational speaker, leadership consultant and tennis professional Rusty Komori holds the U.S. record for the longest winning streak in any school sport—22 consecutive state championships captured by his tennis teams at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Now, Komori shares his secrets for success in life and leadership in Beyond the Lines: Creating a Leadership Culture to Achieve Extraordinary Results, newly released by Legacy isle Publishing. Komori’s “Four Ps of Success” and “Eight Keys of Leadership” offer a game plan for any leader to help an organization achieve and sustain success.

“We all know that success isn’t easy—if it were, everyone would be successful,” Komori acknowledges. “But the question is, do you deal with your challenges in a positive way? Can you help others deal with their challenges? People don’t want to be ‘managed’—they want to be guided.  They want to know that no matter how challenging a situation might be, they can trust their leader to make the best decisions for the team.” In direct, simple terms, Komori lays out a path for achievement and excellence in leadership, drawing from notable examples in sports history, as well as his own experiences over more than two decades as a successful, championship-winning coach.

Komori’s methods have earned him fans from all walks of life, and in highly competitive arenas from corporate boardrooms to Hollywood backlots. “Rusty’s unique brand of physical and mental training has garnered him many awards, yet he’s never lost sight of his true focus—giving young men and women useful insights to help them succeed in any field,” enthuses actor and producer Daniel Dae Kim.  “Beyond the Lines takes you on a journey of inspired leadership through insightful, tangible lessons that can drive teams to success... It has become required reading for all our leadership conferences,” says Corey Campbell, CEO and founder of Akamai Training and Consulting.

A graduate of Damien High School in Honolulu and Creighton University, Komori holds certifications from the International Tennis Performance Association and United States Professional Tennis Association. From 1994 through 2015, when he was head tennis coach at Punahou School, his boys’ varsity teams won an unprecedented 22 consecutive state championships, a national record in all sports that still stands.
