Episode 8: Secrets of a Coach’s Winning Mindset – a look at Klopp and Guardiola

Is there a secret formula to creating a winning mindset? It turns out there is. How does Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp continue to have success no matter what club they go to? What are they doing that’s different from what everyone else is doing? You can see their passion and joy when they are on the field but why does it work? Can we learn from them and can their success be replicated for coaches at various levels?

In this episode, Dr. Tom and Larry break down the methodologies and coaching styles of Guardiola and Klopp. They talk about the three non-negotiables Pep teaches at Manchester City and they discuss the different approach Klopp uses as he ‘likens his role as a father to the team’ and creates mentality monsters at Liverpool. Larry also talks about some key coaching mentors he has had over the years and reveals why their influence made such a huge difference on who he is today.
