Your Trusted Speakers Bureau Partner

  • News

Well, on the Emmy-winning, inspirational, funny, and feel-good series of the same name, Ted Lasso (a small-time college football coach from Kansas recruited to ruin a divorcee’s soccer team in England) was talking about football (soccer in America) when he addressed the press for the first time: “Heck, you could fill two internets with what I don’t know about football.”

And it’s true for most of us. We can’t know everything about everything. But, like Ted Lasso, we can harness the strengths of others to succeed. He may not have known British football, but he knew the power of teamwork and communication. And he relied on others (including his kit man) for the dynamics and the inside scoop on the players.
