In 2017 CNBC released a study done by Earnst & Young showing that 90% of female executive-level leaders had done sports somewhere in their background. We found this to be an astounding statistic and set out to interview some female leaders that we know and find out what they learned from sport that allowed them to become the leaders they are today.
In today’s episode, we share a little about our own sports background, what we do now for a living and the lessons we learned that help us to lead well now.
Becky talks about the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork and the necessity of being willing to apologize.
Patricia talks about grit and the importance of getting up and trying again when we fail.

In her blooper reel, Patricia tells a story about knocking over the conditioner in the bathroom so that it perfectly spray painted everything around it.
