Coach Jim Mora Jr. shares lessons on building culture

This week on Extraordinary Happens, UCLA Head Football Coach Jim Mora Jr. joins me for an inspiring conversation about his coaching journey.

In this episode, Jim shares lessons on learning from people around you and creating a winning culture. He talks about the value of a strong work ethic and attitude, and how in many cases, those traits matter more than raw talent. He talks about his pregame messages and sharing energy with players come game time. Jim drives home one of my biggest beliefs when he talks about how sports can really make a difference in young people’s lives.

“There was an opportunity for me to have an impact on young people’s lives if I coached at the college level as opposed to the professional level. When I had the opportunity to go to UCLA, I jumped at it. And I found the experience to be more than I thought it would be in terms of a rewarding, personal journey for me.” – Jim Mora
