Getting the most out of our athletes can be difficult. However, before we ask our athletes to perform, we must first look inward and evaluate the path we have set for ourselves. What is your coaching philosophy? How does your philosophy drive you to adapt and be the best leader you can be?
Toronto Raptors Jama Mahlalela shares how you can “Win the Moment” and become the best leader you can be. Sharing team and player stories including Jama’s experience on the bench in the NBA and the 2019 Toronto Raptors NBA Championship, Jama brings insight and expertise to help you build the right pathway for your success. Building the right pathway will give you the power to create better people and better performances.
