University of Alabama Director of Athletics Greg Byrne joins ADU’s Steph Garcia Cichosz at the 2023 Women Leaders Convention for a conversation about creating and maintaining a “championship culture” for personal success. Byrne and Garcia-Cichosz dive into goal setting, habits and routines, getting into the flow state, and how Byrne’s definition of achievement – both personally and professionally – have evolved throughout his career. Byrne also shares the “aha” moment that took place during his tenure at the University of Oregon nearly 30 years ago, in which he realized that strategic thinking included three aspects: honoring a school’s past and history; focusing on today’s on- and off-the-field performances; and creating a vision for the future. Byrne: “From a championship culture standpoint, you want to make sure that you create an environment that high-level performing people want to be a part of.”
