Talent matters. But talent alone doesn't win championships.
Notre Dame women's basketball had talent. You remember the names—Skylar Diggins, Becca Bruszewski, Devereaux Peters, Natalie Novosel, Brittany Mallory, Natalie Achonwa, Kayla McBride. But something extra helped them make it to the 2012 Final Four.
Stephanie's Real Colors workshop strengthened our team chemistry by getting us to understand each other better, and definitely contributed to the success of our season.
Penn State had competitive, skilled players in 2012, 2013 & 2014 with Alex Bentley and Maggie Lucas leading the way. But a little something more helped them win back-to-back-to-back Big Ten Regular Season Championships.
Stephanie's Real Colors workshop helped us to better understand and appreciate our differences, and how those differences—if fully respected and allowed to flourish—would make us a more dynamic team. As a result, we played, communicated and worked together better.
Elite coaches know that winning championships takes more than talented players.
It takes a group of individuals who love each other enough to willingly sacrifice and serve. Individuals who trust each other enough to be completely comfortable being themselves. Individuals who gladly embrace whatever role they are given for the good of the whole.
Just watch how Real Colors helped Mississippi State coach Vann Stuedeman more effectively coach one of her players:

What other head coaches said...
So thankful Stephanie spent time with my team. The insight and knowledge my team and staff gained can only enhance our opportunity to be the best we can possibly be and to win championships.
The Real Colors workshop really made an impact on our team. It gave our players a better understanding of themselves and their teammates, and really helped to bring our team closer as a unit.
Having Stephanie work with our team was a no-brainer investment. My only regret is not doing this with teams in the past! We will undoubtedly be bringing Stephanie back to work with us again.
Stephanie's Building Trust and Real Colors workshops opened the door for our team to share and experience in each other's strengths and weaknesses both on and off the court. The facilitation of all the exercises was professional, organized and engaging. Our team easily bought in and will use this for the rest of their lives!
We went 19-9, won the conference tournament and advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history and I am 100% confident that much of that was because of Stephanie's workshops. In my end of the year meetings with the players when asked what kind of things we should do again, every single player singled out these workshops.
