Episode #125: In this week’s podcast we welcome Travis Daugherty, a coach, teacher, speaker, and author of Hidden Talent: Uncovering What Really Makes a Champion a Champion.

Other Highlights from the Discussion:

  • Making mistake as a young coach can help you later in your coaching career

  • What do you do when winning doesn’t fulfill you like you thought it would

  • Asking an athlete, “How would you practice if you were already the champion?”

  • What do champions do better than everyone else?

  • “You are not born a winner or a loser, you are born a chooser.”

  • A coachable spirit is important for athletes AND coaches

  • Being a great teammate in a high-stakes environment

  • Confusing talent with ability
