In this week’s Growth Edge leadership podcast episode, I sit down with a long-time friend and colleague, Blake Lawrence. Blake had a stellar college football career, playing linebacker for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and after an early retirement due to concussions, he pursued his entrepreneurial passions. He founded and successfully exited his first company, a social media agency, and is the CEO of a second venture, opendorse, the largest provider of technology in the athlete endorsement industry. Opendorse helps athletes earn more than $100MM each year through NIL deals, and about 125k athletes use the platform every day.


Among the key takeaways from our conversation:

 - there are numerous styles that result in great coaching

 - not all feedback is good feedback

 - the best coaches are selfless - their success is your growth and success

 - ego can be a big hurdle for people, both as they’re coaching and as they’re being coached

 - part of coaching is equipping team members to coach themselves when you’re not around

 - in coaching, consistency and repetition matter


Listen in.
