We believe that there is no algorithm for leadership and so we interview great sports coaches from around the world to try and find ideas to help all of us lead our families, our colleagues, and our teams better. The best ideas from those interviews are in this newsletter and each week we release a new podcast episode available from wherever you grab your favourite podcasts. We hope you find one or two things here that you can bring to your dinner table, locker room or boardroom table for discussion.
