Urban Meyer

Competition, Leadership and Playing to Win

“We don’t talk about the end at all. We talk about how to get there.”

Having grown up in Ohio, I have always been a fan of Ohio State University. If you weren’t aware, they have the best coach out there: Coach Urban Meyer.

What I love about Coach Meyer is that he doesn’t just set up a team for winning in football, he sets them up to win in life.

Even though football is just a game, there is a lot you can learn from it. The power of teamwork, what it means to be a great leader, and what truly defines a loser (hint: it’s not losing).

Coach Meyer really sets all of his players up to have a solid career and foundation when they leave university, because he doesn’t just run a football program. He runs a leadership program.

Coach Urban Meyer has also led an incredible life himself.

He is a 3 time national championship coach and a NY Times bestselling author.

I’m so excited to share this interview with you. If you are in any type of a team or leadership position, I know you’re going to get so much value out of this.
