Longtime Houston Texans team president Jamey Rootes has a new title to add to his bio – author.
Rootes, who has been with the team since inception and has three decades in sports business, releases his new book "The Winning Game Plan: A Proven Leadership Playbook for Consistent Business Success" on November 10th on Amazon.
"I think back to 2000 when we launched the team," Rootes said. "So many people told me, 'Look, here's the deal. In Houston, if you win, people will come. If you lose, people won't come. That's just the way it works.' I never believed that. I really felt in my heart that there was a plan that we could put together that would help us and allow us to be very successful as a business despite what happens on the field. The reality is, the NFL is setup for every team to go .500. So if you bank on winning, you're not going to do it every year so there's got to be something else going on."
The book, dedicated to late Texans Founder and CEO Bob McNair, outlines a world-class approach to leading a business to exceptional and sustained success. Through trial, error and adjustment, these guiding principles have helped the Texans deliver breakthrough financial results for partners, a rewarding workplace experience, tremendous customer loyalty and a reputation as a caretaker for Houston.

"The Winning Game Plan: A Proven Leadership Playbook for Consistent Business Success" will have special deals available on release day – November 10th – so mark your calendars today.
