Courtney Banghart, the head women’s basketball coach at Princeton who led her team to six Ivy League titles, was named the 2015 Naismith National Coach of the Year and one of The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders by Fortune Magazine, was this week’s guest on the Red Shoes Living podcast. On and off the court, Courtney is a remarkable Red Shoes Living individual and a winner at every level.
Leaders in all stages of their career and in every industry will be inspired and motivated by Courtney’s words. She and Lonnie talk about the best way to start your day to make the biggest impact, the art of the possible and how to surround yourself with a diverse group of mentors (including those who would “still love you if you robbed a bank”) and people that fill your cup. At her core, Courtney is a servant leader who believes life is about who you are and who you help. Tune in to learn her “share and shoot it” philosophy that guides her players on and off the court.
Hey Lonnie, did you know there is a word that describes you? the word is ‘Possibilist’ so, change your profile to Lonnie Mayne, Possibilist
Courtney: You are so right—know yourself and focus on helping others. I love the distinction between managing public persona/identity while just being you. My license plate is JSTBEYO. I love seeing smiles in my rearview mirror. And, I didn’t pick this—never would do a vanity plate, but someone who knows me very well gifted it to me. Thank you for being you!
