The Man Watching: Soccer Coach Lessons for High Performance Leaders

This episode is sponsored by the CIO Innovation Insider Council.

My guest this week is Tim Crothers, a journalism professor and a freelance sportswriter. He has written three books on leadership from a coaching perspective.

I became interested in his book The Man Watching after my interview with Tom Chaby when he mentioned his favorite book Top Dog by Ashley Merryman. I loved that book, and in it there are several pages dedicated to Tim Crothers and his work on the dynasty of women’s soccer created by the coach Anson Dorrance at the University of North Carolina.

I decided to ask Tim Crothers to come on to the show. I encourage you to listen to this interview, as you will learn so much about how to lead you millennials and work new ideas and approaches into your leadership style. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did! Continue reading

High Performance IT Leadership Is a Verb: Empower Yourself with a Navy Seal Mindset!

This episode is sponsored by the CIO Innovation Insider Offense and Defense Community. 

This week my guest is Capitan Tom Chaby. Tom has been an active duty US Navy SEAL for 26 years and was a task force commander of 400 men in Iraq and Afghanistan. Retired a few years ago, he now specializes in leadership performance optimization. Tom works with sports teams and corporations that are looking to learn from his experience and his circle of influence.

In this interview, we discuss leadership and team culture from Navy SEAL’s perspective. What I find extraordinary about Tom is that most things we talk about are so transferable to you: leadership style, the way you lead and perform under pressure, and how to be a high performance leader.

For those leaders in innovation, transformation, entrepreneurship and leadership of any sort, you will love my interview with Captain Tom Chaby. I hope you receive as much benefit and value from it as I did.
