Soccer fans and fans of good coaching were treated to a special Zoom conversation on March 4th, 2021 with U.S. Men’s National Team Coach Gregg Berhalter. Moderated by The Athletic’s Paul Tenorio, Coach Berhalter walked our audience through his process and guiding principles on creating an environment that positions his team for success.

Coach’s building blocks to creating an optimal environment starts with leadership (as a coach be authentic, communicate clearly, have compassion and humility). In this video, Berhalter addresses the group leadership model today vs. having a single captain, and discusses how that works.
