Bill Eckstrom on the functional tennis podcast

Building elite teams with Bill Eckstrom [Ep.176]

On today’s episode, I meet online with Bill Eckstrom - CEO and founder of Ecsell Institute, the parent company of Ecsell Sports.

In our chat, we discuss Bill fascinating new TedX Talk: “A New Way To Win: Re-defining the Student-Athlete Experience,” that puts forward the idea that the key to developing elite teams, in both sport & beyond, may be more down to developing strong relationships between team members rather than honing specific skills. Bill also gives his own tips for what makes a great coach and why, in his words, comfort can ‘ruin your life’.
