Conquering Giants: Thriving Leadership – Part 1

“Super Thrive Week” Series

My favorite thing about this movie is how the coach realized that although his team wasn’t the most talented, he convinced team to look beyond their talent to see something that no one could take away from them – heart. He helped his players see beyond their perceived limitations and reach goals they would not have thought possible for themselves.
