Summary

Whether it be in basketball or in business, the key to building a successful team is to strengthen individual qualities and focus the team on a single goal. Tara VanDerveer, Director and Head Coach of Stanford's women's basketball team, has had a near-perfect record of 224 wins to 33 losses over the past eight years and has led her team to two NCAA championships. In this speech, the candid and engaging storyteller shares the coaching methods that have helped her team triumph, as well as the pitfalls to avoid. Using honesty and positive reinforcement as the cornerstone of her process, VanDerveer explains how to maintain unity, stay focused on a goal, and build a winning team.

Unstructured free flow

Didn't like it. This lady could talk anyone out of town. If you like unstructured monologues in a constant tone, get it.
Quality of broadcast is not the best.
