Episode Six: Greg Ireland
In episode six, catch up with Coach Greg Ireland.
Coach Ireland has a really interesting coaching background
He’s head coached at the major junior level, American hockey league level, ECHL, and spent several years coaching in the Swiss league, which is considered to be one of the top leagues in Europe. He’s currently coaching in the Italian league in Bolzano, Italy..I’ve been there before...what a beauty place to be a coach. Great opportunity to explore and grow from.
Today we get into so many interesting parts of Coach Irelands coaching experiences.
We discuss what he has learned from legends like Wayne Gretzky and Pavel Datsyuk.
We discuss the lessons he has learned from going out and educating himself in European coaching cultures...some great coaching wisdom he shares with us about his time in Sweden and Finland.
We talk about how he has used parenting to help him as a coach, and how he has been able to use his experience as a coach to help his parenting.
And we discuss all kinds of experiences he’s had with leadership exposure, including what he’s learned from the navy seals, and how he was able to implement coaching development he had received from a Cornell leadership course he had taken to help him improve his coaching game.
Looking forward to taking you on this very interesting conversation with Coach Greg Ireland.
