Podcast Episode Coming Soon

This week on the podcast, we are airing a replay of a man who needs no intro, 8x NBA Champ and current Golden St Warriors coach Steve Kerr. We are replaying this today because Steve will be one of the presenters at our 2021 Way of Champions Virtual Conference, joining fellow coaching legends Quin Snyder, Cindy Timchal, Anson Dorrance, George Mumford, and more TBA. You can discover more about the event here: https://changingthegameproject.com/2021-way-of-champions-conference/

In our discussion with Steve, John and Jerry ask: What makes a great coach? How do you build a championship culture? Why should a coach ask their team, “How can I be better for you?” These questions and so many more are answered in this fantastic episode with one of the best coaches in the world.

Highlights from the Discussion:

  • How an NFL Football Coach helped Coach Kerr develop a coaching philosophy
  • How to get players to buy in to core values of a coach
  • What do effective coaches have in common? Authority and Humanity
  • What percentage of coaching is strategic?
  • “Never let a player rot at the end of a bench.”
  • Why has Coach Kerr let his players run the time outs?
  • What is the role of “Love” in coaching?
  • What are the ingredients needed for a great culture?
  • Cultural Architects vs Cultural Assassins
  • How do you build a culture when there is high turnover?
  • Having the confidence and the vulnerability to be honest with your team
  • Coach Kerr gives his thoughts on how what to ask the parents of a young athlete in order to coach more effectively

We finish the show by talking about legacy and how Coach Kerr wants to be remembered. You don’t want to miss this one!
