How Can Ted Lasso Transform Your Workplace?

In honor of the FIFA Women’s World Cup kicking off this week, let’s take a moment to learn and appreciate Ted Lasso’s take on leadership.  The TV show has taken the world by storm, but at the core of the series is a character that inspires, develops, and motivates a team and people to succeed.  The plot of the TV series is when American football coach, Ted Lasso, is hired to coach an English soccer team with NO previous soccer experience or knowledge of the sport. His successes comes through his philosophy on leadership.  Even if you don’t care for soccer or have never seen the show, simply reading the lessons of Ted are enlightening.  How can you implement the philosophy of Ted’s character in your workplace or in your personal life?
