This week's guest is Minnesota Gophers softball coach Jamie Trachsel who, in just her second season at the helm, led the Gophers to their first-ever Women’s College World Series appearance. Having her team dreaming big and swinging for Oklahoma City, she has been able to bridge the gap in facing adversity and priming her team for success. Jamie’s Midwest work-ethic and genuine character shine through in this episode as she shares advice for first-time head coaches, managing transition, team culture, resiliency, and the power of strong role models.
