We had the opportunity to talk with Steve Jones, a legendary high school football coach who has helped shape the lives of countless young athletes. Before retiring from coaching, Steve coached for 10 years. During his time, the Papermakers have compiled a 118-8 record including a Wisconsin state record of 70 wins in a row. 9 conference championships and 5 consecutive state championships along with one state runner-up finish.
Steve is now helping Fortune 500 companies inspire leaders and develop a winning culture. Naturally, we wanted to learn more about how Steve took his leadership strategies and tactics from football to the business world.
In this episode, we explore his strategies for developing winning teams, building strong relationships with players, and instilling a sense of purpose in the lives of those he coaches.”
