Embedded below is a list of Joe Maddon’s “13 Core Principles of Managing.” This list was taken from Tom Verducci’s excellent book The Cubs Way: The Zen of Building the Best Team in Baseball and Breaking the Curse. Verducci’s book is a great read on the Chicago Cubs franchise since Theo Epstein took over as the team’s GM in 2011. I highly recommend it to coaches looking for a summer book.
