Coaching for Change – Making the Pandemic Pivot with Maurice Taylor of Prodigy Basketball

“Your talent can only take you so far, if you are a horrible individual no one is going to want to work with you anyway.” – Moe Taylor

It is a pleasure and honor to have my son’s best coach in today’s episode to talk to us about how leadership is very palpable even in the basketball field.

Moe Taylor or Coach Moe is the Program Director at Prodigy Basketball Community for more than 12 years now who strives to help young boys and girls to become better players, students, and members of society.

In this episode we talked about his history, handling A+ players, sizing up someone’s potential and so much more.

Even if you are not a basketball coach, I assure you that this is going to be an episode filled with great nuggets.
