This week Coach Brendan Suhr is joined by David Nurse, NBA Life Optimization Coach turned best selling Author and Keynote Speaker. David Nurse has been transforming the way hundreds of NBA stars play on the court for most of his career.

He has written two bestselling books, runs a successful motivational coaching business and is a highly-sought-after speaker—hired by companies like Dell, Salesforce, ESPN and The NBA—to help thousands of employees and athletes develop unshakeable mindsets.

This week Coach Brendan Suhr is joined by P.J. Fleck, Head Coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team. In this episode, Coach Fleck discusses his new book Row the Boat: A Never-Give-Up Approach to Lead with Enthusiasm and Optimism and Improve Your Team and Culture. In Row the Boat, Minnesota Golden Gophers Head Coach P.J. Fleck and bestselling author Jon Gordon deliver an inspiring message about what you can achieve when you approach life with a never-give-up philosophy. The book shows you how to choose enthusiasm and optimism as your guiding lights instead of being defined by circumstances and events outside of your control. Discover how to put the three key components of row the boat into practice in your life: The Oar: The energy. Only you can dictate whether your oar is in the water or whether you take it out and decide not to use it. The Boat: The sacrifice. The more you give, serve, and make your life about helping others, the better and more fulfilled your life will be, and the bigger your boat gets. The Compass: The direction. The vision you have for your life and the people you surround yourself with help create the dream of where you want to go. Perfect for athletes, coaches, business leaders, and anyone else who hopes to squeeze a little more enjoyment and productivity out of life, Row the Boat will propel leaders, teams, and organizations to greater heights than they have ever reached before. Coach Fleck also gives tremendous insight into his approach as the head coach at Minnesota, how he developed the mantra Row the Boat, an inside look at the HYPRR Culture he has created, why he views his Golden Gopher program as a life program and not a football program, his thoughts on coaching through last season and why he viewed it as a success, and several amazing takeaways for coaches in any sport to apply to their program.
