Welcome to the Way of Champions Podcast hosted by John O'Sullivan.


Each week we connect you with the top minds in sport, coaching, leadership, and creating championship programs so you can take your athletes and teams to the next level.

May 28, 2018

We often discuss what it takes to be a great leader, but the flip side is a willingness to be led. Great athletes, and even great coaches are always eager to learn and be led by others. Are you the kind of athlete willing to listen to others and put in the work? Listen to the rest of our podcast with Paul Kapsalis to hear more of his story.


Enjoy the show!
