What happens when you get involved with 115 championship-winning teams, consult 12 Hall of Fame coaches, found one of the most elite performance consultancy agencies, earn doctorates in psychology and philosophy, and write over a dozen best-selling books?

Well, you write another book, about the best bits you’ve learned so far.

Dr. Jerry Lynch is the Founder of Way of Champions, a performance consultancy that combines elite sports psychology, with international philosophy concepts, to generate peak performance. He’s written over a dozen books on his studies on excellence, from “The Competitive Buddha,” “Coaching with Heart,” “Win the Day,” “Let Them Play,” with his newest book on the horizon, “Everyday Champion Wisdom.”

Dr. Lynch has worked together with coaches and athletes like Steve Kerr, Nancy Stevens, Anson Dorrance, and Phil Jackson, and a slew of accolades. In total, Dr. Lynch has helped secure 73 conference championships, 54 Final Fours, and 39 National Championships.

Dr. Lynch spent some time with us to talk about big ideas like the importance of failure, the need for play, and how you are never crowned a champion: you be a champion.

He joined us for another conversation on the Bring It In podcast and it’s one of our most impactful and inspiring episodes to date. Here are our biggest highlights…
