It's a delicious, sugar-free electrolyte drink-mix.

They have extremely low return rates. LMNT came up with a very special offer for you as a listener to this podcast. For a limited time, you can claim a free LMNT Sample Pack—you only cover the cost of shipping. For US customers, this means you can receive an 8-count sample pack for only $5. Simply go to DrinkLMNT.com/contacts to claim your free 8-count sample pack. [00:07:25] I got to see playing from a different perspective. I was no longer a star. I was no longer a starter. And so, I started watching film sessions a little bit differently. I started being like, ok, I'm not playing, but I was maybe not mature, but I was mature enough to understand it's not always coach's fault. I just wasn't good enough. [00:09:52] Value relationships and to value people…we are in a people business as an AD, as a coach, you are in the people business. [00:10:55] Sometimes our best decisions are made by other people. [00:11:20] I'm completely devoted to the craft. I'm completely devoted to the players. I'm soaking in everything. [00:14:11] I wasn't ready to be head coach, but I was more prepared than a lot of other people. Even though I knew it was about people, even though I cared about people, I cared about my players. I wanted to give back, wanting to make a difference. I also was a pretty big fan of myself. [00:15:02] What they want to know is how can you help me achieve my goals, my dreams my desires. How can you help me look good? [00:15:15] I cared about them, but they didn't know that because I didn't demonstrate that daily. [00:15:55] It should be our program that you're putting first, not just my program. [00:16:24] Teenagers, especially having a difficult time, reconciling those two things that seemed to be an opposition can both be true, right? They're very black and white. There's no gray space at this age. [00:17:22] Every year I felt like I got to be a little bit better coach because I screwed up the year before. [00:17:55] We don't need buy-in from our place. We need them to take ownership and be invested in the whole process. [00:19:51] If they had the same opinion, as you will get that opinion before you tell them what opinion they should have. [00:22:16] We try to fix symptoms as opposed to getting people healthy. [00:23:03] I would Institute either character leadership, teamwork, some kind of training to equip and empower your athletes. [00:25:37] Even though we want our athletes to be coachable, we don't learn and we don't grow and we don't develop and become better ourselves, but we want our athletes to do that. [00:27:00] Being around people of influence people that help us get from where we are to where we need to be, that inspires people. [00:27:10] You inspire people when they feel like they can trust you when they feel like you're there to help make them better. [00:28:26] The coach wanted to make sure that he was adding value to this player and wanting to make sure that the player felt like he was part of the process. [00:31:23]One of the number one thing is how are you maximizing your strengths? How are you minimizing your weaknesses in any way? [00:34:21] You've got to put your people in positions to be successful no matter what sport you're coaching. [00:38:24] Buy in is essentially, you're trying to get someone to agree with you as opposed to all of you collaborating and taking ownership in the process. [00:39:11] Everyone's a verbal leader, one is everybody can inform. Secondly, everybody can remind, and everybody can encourage. [00:41:32] Kids are a product of their environment and we need to meet them where they are if we're going to help them achieve the success that we want them to. [00:44:10] There are all these things that go on in the back of the bus conversations that go on. In the back of the bus and that's when your culture is made or broken sometimes. [00:48:11] Lead in the way in which you wish it would have happened for you.

The book has been called a “game changer” by national championship football coach Urban Meyer. It has been credited with having a huge impact on Coach Meyer's decision to come out of the broadcast booth and take over the reigns of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Todd is first and foremost, a husband and father.   His expertise in leadership and cultural dynamics comes from a broad range of experiences in the world of business and athletics, spanning over 25 years. He has held numerous executive positions in companies ranging from entrepreneurial start-up to public entity, while also serving as an assistant college basketball coach for over a decade. Following the successful launch of the Need to LEAD program, a systematic approach to shaping team culture, Todd wrote LEAD…for God's Sake, A parable for finding the heart of leadership. As the popularity of the book grew, stories of its powerful impact surfaced in such noted publications as ESPN Magazine, Yahoo Sports, ESPN.com and Forbes.com.

    Clark Kellogg, CBS Basketball Analyst (replay)

    March Madness is here and the NCAA college basketball tournament is upon us. Hope you have your brackets filled out. Clark Kellogg will be on our TVs for the next few weeks so we thought this was a great time to re-release one of our more popular episodes. This is a replay of episode #149. Hope you enjoy!   Clark Kellogg is one of the most respected voices covering college basketball today. The CBS Sports analyst was once a top college basketball player at Ohio State University, where he earned All-Big Ten Conference honors and won the Big Ten Most Valuable Player award in 1982. After his junior year at Ohio State, he declared for the 1992 NBA draft and was selected eighth overall in the first round by the Indiana Pacers, and named to the NBA All-Rookie first team in 1983 after averaging 20.1 points and 10.6 rebounds. But his NBA career was cut short after just four seasons due to knee injuries, and he was forced to retire in 1986 at the age of 25. Clark began his broadcasting journey with ESPN in 1990, and in 1993 he moved to CBS Sports, where he has worked since. In March 2010, Kellogg played a game of H.O.R.S.E. against U.S. President Barack Obama. The game, called “P.O.T.U.S.” for the occasion, was won by Obama. In today's episode, we discuss: Playing basketball against President Obama What makes up a great leader Being the parent of athletes Working with Charles Barkley during NCAA Tournament How players can use their platform ... and so much more!!!
