Why can some sports teams perform together in ways that exceed potential? Why do other sports teams fail to play cohesively?
Four-time Olympic medalist Summer Sanders joins you live. She will discuss three norms of high-performing athletic teams – willingness to be vulnerable, accountability for action, and shared mindset – and help your team apply those ideas to their work.
The recently trending meme of ‘wearing your Speedo to work’ was born from this experience and propagated by the teams who embrace the three norms.
Summer Sanders is an American sports commentator and former competitive swimmer.
She won four medals (two gold) at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics (more medals than any other American swimmer). She won nine NCAA championship titles during her two-year career at Stanford University.
Summer hosted the NBA’s “Inside Stuff” for eight seasons and was Nickelodeon’s first ever female game show host of “Figure It Out” for 5 seasons.
She has been a correspondent for Good Morning America and the Today Show. She has also covered 8 Olympic Games for both NBC and Yahoo Sports as reporter and host.
Summer is the author of “Champions Are Raised, Not Born”.
