Lee Brower: A Life Coaching Lesson on Teaching and Learning

By Ron Nakamoto

For the past few years, Lee Brower has been an unofficial life coach and guru to many young girls, coaches, and parents involved with girls softball.  Lee and his wife Lori are the driving forces behind the annual WACKY Softball Tournament, an event that raises awareness and money for kids and young adults fighting cancer.

Like many other youth sports, softball games can ignite coaches’ and parents’ emotions when “bad calls” or unjust, unfair events occur.  In this video, Lee talks about the consequences when adults react poorly in these situations

“Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing.”

— Albert Schweitzer

As leaders of families, businesses, and communities, we can underestimate the long-term impact our influence has on others, especially our children. This story serves as a reminder that, as Lee says, “You are teachers and you are learners every single moment.”
