Episode #18: Jason Booher, US Navy SEAL on the Power of Adversity

This week on the #RaisingAthletes Podcast,  we are excited to have United States Navy SEAL veteran, Jason Booher on. While he is currently the leader of the management consulting firm, Northwest Harbor Solutions, Booher served 23 years as a commander in the SEALS, leading teams in everything from basic SEAL training, i.e., BUD/S to commanding hundreds of combat operations as well as driving integration of cross-functional intelligence teams. He currently serves as an advisor to the local Southern California public sector as well as at the most senior levels of U.S. Congress, professional teams including the LA Dodgers and at RedBull High Performance, as well as is a guest lecturer at Harvard and MIT on Leadership.

Jason's life experience as a leader in one of the US military's most exclusive and rigorous branches makes him the perfect person to talk to when we want to know more about raising resilient, gritty, hard-working kids. He shares some incredible insights which are completely transferrable to the coaching/playing world for how to build peak performance teams! (Hint: it starts with accountability from within.)

Episode #13: Channing Frye: The Mindset of an NBA Champion

This week on #RaisingAthletes, we speak with former Cleveland Cavalier NBA Champion, Channing Frye. He discusses the importance of trying things other than basketball. For example, his first passion was the trumpet.

He lays down what he looks for in an ideal teammate and who he aspires to be as one.

We discuss mindset and what it takes to make it at every level, how you need to show up, even when or especially when things don’t go our way.

At the very end, he shares with us Lebron’s secret weapon to success… it’s so good he uses it too!

If you are finding our podcast helpful, we’d be so grateful if you’d pop over to iTunes and write a review and share us with your other sports parenting friends.
