Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Next Goal Wins

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Directed by Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins is a heartwarming tale based on the true story of the American Samoa soccer team. The team was so bad that they once lost all 30 games they played. To add salt to their wounds, they also had a 31-0 loss to Australia in 2001. This sent Australia to the 2002 World Cup.

But, like many things, teams can turn around. Organizations can change. And people can be proud of the work they do.

I missed this gem of a film in the theaters. However, you can now catch this movie on Disney Plus and other streaming channels. It’s worth checking out.

Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Thor: Ragnarok

A Reel Leadership Article

Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Thor for the blockbuster movie Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third time Hemsworth has been featured in a stand-alone Thor film (surprisingly, I have not done a Reel Leadership article on the other 2 Thor films).

Thor: Ragnarok changes tones for the third film. Ragnarok feels more like a buddy comedy than full-on action/superhero. And that’s not a bad thing.

Leadership lessons and quotes from Thor: Ragnarok

The previous Thor films ranked on the lower end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. They always felt like a letdown. Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t. Instead, Thor: Ragnarok delivers.

Not only does Thor: Ragnarok deliver in laughs, action, and adventure, Thor: Ragnarok delivers in leadership lessons as well.
