Valorie Kondos Field was Head Gymnastics Coach at UCLA for 29 years. She led them to 7 National Championships despite having no experience in gymnastics.
Valorie dramatically changed her philosophies throughout her coaching career, and tells us why in this episode.
Valorie has since gone on to deliver TED Talks with her philosophy of ‘Winning doesn’t always equal success’.
Her inspiration has come from meetings with the late Kobe Bryant, her mentor John Wooden and listening to her team, some of whom were survivors of the USA Gymnastics sexual abuse scandal. You will learn and take so much from this podcast, we promise 😊. Enjoy.
