“What is the difference between an artist and a coach? At the end of the day, an artist can throw their work away, but a coach cannot.” You do not want to miss this interview with Women’s National Wrestling Team Head Coach Terry Steiner. We discuss the difference between coaching men and women, how important culture and direct communication is to performance, and how to make a positive influence everyday on every athlete.
Under Coach Steiner, Team USA has won 36 Sr Level World Medals, 7 Senior World Champions, 5 Olympic Medalists, and 1 has Olympic Champion.

Highlights from the Discussion:

  • “Every day has to be a gold medal day.”
  • What is the difference between an artist and a coach? At the end of the day, an artist can throw away their work.
  • Why the ultimate reason kids should play sports I not for the fame and glory, but for the  lessons learned in defeat
  • Why are coaches rarely fired because of “lack of Xs and Os”?
  • Coach Steiner talks about what it was like choosing a university under a coach that made it a point to not promise anything!
  • Why Coach Steiner decided to coach women’s wrestling
  • How important is “direct” communication?
