Anson Dorrance, 22-Time National Champion

Anson Dorrance is quite possibly the most successful coach of any sport all-time, having led the UNC Women’s Soccer program to an astounding 22 national titles. On the show today, Anson talks about how he quantifies competitiveness, lessons learned from watching Dean Smith run practice, his perspective on the Black Lives Matter protests, and why he’s much more focused on human development than athletic development.

Coming Soon – Anson’s Book, Vision of a Champion, will be available on audiobook and adapted into a podcast series. For more information including sponsorship opportunities, check out the Vision of a Champion website.

The Donald Thompson Podcast is hosted by Walk West CEO, mentor, investor, and Diversity and Inclusion Consultant Donald Thompson.

Music for this episode provided by Jensen Reed from his song, “You Can’t Stop Me”.
