As a coach you might not be able to fully control winning, but you can control the experience your team has.
"Sport has phenomenal capacity to grow leaders but it's not getting done. It's probably producing more toxic people in some ways..."
"We want to ensure that people are understanding the ‘command and control’ coaching of the past is not acceptable..."
"Someone is not born a leader, they're not predispositioned based on their personality to be a great leader. They have skills that they've developed over time."
'We challenge coaches to be selective in what they take from these series and not just imitate what is seen on the limited insider footage."
