"A team isn't a bunch of kids out to win. A team is something you belong to, something you feel, something you have to earn" - Gordon Bombay, The Mighty Ducks
The above quote brings me back to my childhood. Watching the movie "The Mighty Ducks" and seeing the underdogs use strategy to their advantage to become victorious over a more skilled and arrogant team.
While many of us know how important it is to work in a team, and for everyone to have aligned vision and goals; to get to that point is not an easy task. It doesn't happen by chance or default. It happens by design.
In episode 6 of The Badminton Podcast, we talk to Andrew Surman, who is the managing Director of Hayes Girling Financial, a nationally awarded Accounting and Financial Planning firm located in Australia.
Andrew's specialty is in building high performing teams and developing people. And it's for this reason that we wanted him to share his wisdom with everyone.

What's something you're really good at? is it badminton? Don't worry about the rest of this post if it is hahaha. Let's say it's not for now and call that skill of yours guitar playing.
I'm sure there was a point when everything seemed unnatural and yet you were compelled to learn how to play a particular song or play like that famous or very skilful guitar player you heard. This translates to most if not all skills in life and of course badminton too.
How far into your badminton journey are you? Are you just getting started, a seasoned professional or looking for opportunities to get better? If you decided to get better, would you consider getting a coach?
I'm hitting you with so many questions but maybe you'd have some for us if you were considering getting a coach.
