Coach Burt has been called “America’s Coach,” and offers the unique blend of a former championship basketball coach mixed with a deep methodology of inner-engineering people to produce at a higher level in the business world. In part one, Coach Burt talks about how his coaching career started at the age of 15, why Stephen R. Covey inspired his leadership journey, and how he helps teams activate their “prey drive.”
