“There is a changing landscape in our coaching profession right now. The old progression was to prove that you were good at the Xs and Os, prove you could win, and then, slowly but surely, reach for the higher calling of human development. What I see in this cutting-edge book is our future. Just like all of our sports evolve, our profession has as well, and what Brett has to offer in What Drives Winning is our PhD. This is a very important book.”
