Uniquely Better by Amber Vanderburg
In 2016, Amber Vanderburg left her corporate job to become the only American, only female, and only blonde Academy football coach for the Paris Saint Germain Academy and Adidas Gameday Academy in Bangalore, India. As she emerged into the land of masala and chai, she found remarkably talented and driven players operating under a strict command-obey dynamic. Players would stand in a line, kick a ball, and wait for direction. While this may be an efficient way to teach a skill, in a game scenario, it was disastrous. She witnessed players kick the ball during matches and then turn to the sideline for future instruction. She noticed that the players had mastered tasks but didn't understand the game application.
We see these parallels in our business life every day. People come to work, receive a task, and wait for instruction. Opportunities for ownership in teams establish opportunities to be uniquely better - Join Amber in her powerful story of team transformation, daring adventures, an exciting future in the beautiful land of India, working within multicultural teams; of remarkable athletes coming together to build something great; of how teams can establish a competitive advantage and of a hometown Okie trying her best.
