Vanderbilt Head Women’s Basketball Coach Shea Ralph joins Coach Bob Walsh on the Dynamic Leadership Podcast to discuss preparing to run her own program as an assistant, establishing a winning culture, the art of recruiting, her definition of leadership and much more.


1:35 – What did you do to prepare yourself as an assistant coach for the day when you’re going to run your own program?
3:36 – Can you give me an example of that something specific where you put yourself in an uncomfortable position to help grow?
9:41 – What were you looking for when you put your staff together?
12:55 – How do you go about establishing a winning culture in a program that’s not used to winning?
16:08 – Do you have a definition of leadership for your team and how would you describe your leadership approach as a coach?
17:47 – Who’s the best leader you’ve ever played with or you’ve ever coached and what made them so special?
22:45 – Is a competitive edge something you can recruit or can you teach that?
26:00 – If I were to come to one of your practices at Vanderbilt, how am I going to describe it when I walk away?
