Resources for changing the game with great coaching
Slalom Presents is a virtual event series that brings the world’s leading voices into exclusive conversations on the topics that matter most to business and community leaders today. Our second event gathered perspectives from athletes and coaches who led their teams through challenging times to extraordinary outcomes—in and out of the game.
Arshay Cooper shared the incredible story of the first all-Black high school crew team in the US. We heard from Earvin “Magic” Johnson, coach Jill Ellis of the US Women's National Soccer Team, and Wing Commander Andy Green, who holds the world land speed record, in a panel hosted by award-winning ESPN anchor Hannah Storm. We also talked with Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a leading authority on the global COVID response, about how the life sciences industry is rallying through this crisis.
As a follow-up to these powerful conversations, we offer these insights and resources to help you build more resilient and agile teams.
It can be as simple as a kind word, exercising patience, encouraging someone, connecting with someone—we all can impact the environments we’re in.
Make learning a priority.
Many teams have been forced to manage unprecedented levels of personal and professional stress through the COVID crisis. But teams that focus on innovation and agility have always been more resilient, even before this crisis—and they'll only continue to grow in value after this crisis fades. That's why the best coaches reinforce the importance of life-long learning.
As every coach knows, gaining new skills is energizing. It’s the opposite of burnout. By making employee learning a strategic priority, you can keep your team charged up to innovate well beyond this crisis.
