Alan Stein, Jr.

My friend Alan Stein Jr. was the very first guest on the Hoop Heads Podcast back in 2018 and today he joins us for episode number 250.  Alan spent 15 years working with the highest performing basketball players in the world including some of the best ever in the NBA.   He shifted focus about three  years ago to enter the world of corporate speaking when he realized that the leadership, culture, and teamwork he was teaching through basketball could be applied in the business world as well.  Alan delivers high-energy keynotes and interactive workshops to improve performance, cohesion, and accountability.  He inspires and empowers everyone he works with to take immediate action and improve mindset, habits, and productivity.

In this 250th episode of the Hoop Heads Podcast Alan and I talk about the 5 characteristics of great coaching from his book “Raise Your Game”. Check the show notes to order your copy today!
