What's being discussed?

“Takin’ on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse. If you’re comfortable while you’re doin’ it, you’re probably doin’ it wrong.”

Sometimes the challenge of leadership can be quite agonizing. However, a leader's ability to lean into that discomfort can be fundamental in defining their success. Emmy-winning series Ted Lasso may be an entertaining comedy, but a deeper dive into Coach Lasso's unique methods to motivate and lead his team reveals a series of critical and relevant leadership lessons: lessons that can help recreation professionals engage, develop, and retain high-performance work groups and teams.
