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.

Teen Titans on time machine trikes - DC Comics animated movie Teen Titans Go! To The Movies Leadership Lessons

That movie was the DC Comics animated movie Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Teen Titans Go! To The Movies brings the most recent Teen Titans cartoon to the big screen. This series is not as serious as the previous Teen Titans cartoon or the upcoming R-Rated Teen Titans live-action streaming series on the DC Universe streaming service.

Instead of being serious or dark, Teen Titans Go! plays up the sidekick superheroes as immature, childish, and selfish. This made for a fun time at the theater. Teen Titans Go! To The Movies also provided many leadership lessons. In this week’s Reel Leadership, we’re going to look at the leadership lessons from Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.
