“Games are won and lost in practice.”

To a lot of people, the pandemic was a show stopping almost world ending event that threw everything into chaos. However, for some people the pandemic was a “forced timeout,” and what do you do in a timeout?

You adjust, you re-strategize, you rest, and you rethink your goals.

For Paul Epstein, when the pandemic hit, he knew exactly what to do. Prior to the pandemic, Paul took some time to really think about his purpose. What were his non-negotiables, what did he stand for, what really drove him. After a lifetime of working with some of the most prolific franchises in the NFL and NBA, including the San Francisco 49ers, the Sacramento Kings, and the L.A. Clippers, Paul switched gears and founded his purpose and culture driven consultancy group, Purpose Labs.

Now a renowned speaker and consultant for hundreds of enterprises across the sports and corporate landscape, Paul put together his findings in his latest book, “The Power of Playing Offense: A Leader's Playbook for Personal and Team Transformation.” Since the pandemic Paul’s teachings have gained a new level of relevance and urgency, as companies everywhere grapple with how to lead with purpose.
