Mindfulness and basketball aren’t typically two words that go together.  But, author and keynote speaker, Mike Lee, joined me on the podcast today to share how mindfulness can improve your game.

Bridging his background in basketball leadership and performance — training some of basketball’s 1% — with mindfulness and emotional intelligence, Mike helps high-performing leaders master the psychology needed to lead and perform in a 2020 world.

Through his experience building an international basketball brand from his college apartment, and growing it while beating the heroin-like withdrawal symptoms of pharmaceutical medication, Mike understands the challenges leaders face.

In the basketball world, it’s crucial that players have the fundamental skills to execute the team’s strategy. In the business world, it’s no different.  People need the foundational skills like self-awareness, presence and resilience to constantly adapt, perform and create in this time of unprecedented change.

Drawing on the latest research from neuroscience, basketball and personal experience, he’s shared stories and practical exercises — across the United States, Indonesia and Spain — to help people find their own inner power and poise to thrive in business and life.

He is the founder of Thrive3, a basketball training company that “creates game-changing experiences that crossover from the court to life”. At Thrive3 he’s worked at Academies or individual development sessions with players like NBA MVP Stephen Curry, All-Star Joel Embiid and Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. Mike is also the author of the internationally sold book, UN/TRAIN.
