The Champion's Code: Life Lessons of Value & Integrity from the Sports World to the Business World

Ross Bernstein
Ross Bernstein

The difference between athletes and champions is the “code” that they choose to live by. Champions are role models, both on and off the field, and their DNA is truly unique. Ross Bernstein spent five years researching and interviewing more than 1,000 professional athletes for his nationally best-selling series of “Code” books, which chronicle the unwritten rules in sports, and in his presentation he uses that wealth of information to educate, enlighten and inspire his audiences — challenging them to question their own personal and professional principles and values in order to become better bottom-line leaders. In his program, Ross identifies more than 50 unique characteristics and traits that are common among champions, which he then ties into poignant stories and life lessons that translate directly to business. Audience members will learn that champions aren’t necessarily those who have won championships; but rather they are those who live and play by a higher standard. It’s the way they conduct themselves when no one is looking; the way they prepare and train harder than everybody else; the way they treat their teammates; the way that they come through in the clutch, the way that they play hurt; and the way that they play whatever role that is asked of them. Champions also understand that there’s a fine line between cheating and gamesmanship in sports, as well as in business, and they know that crossing that line means that they will have to suffer the consequences.

Speaker Bio:
Ross Bernstein is the best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books and has appeared on thousands of television and radio programs over his career, including CNN, CBS This Morning, and ESPN, as well as on the covers of the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today. As an internationally recognized motivational business speaker, Ross uses inspirational sports stories to energize and connect his audiences, ultimately getting them to think and act more like champions. Ross’ program, “The Champion’s Code: Life Lessons of Ethics and Accountability from the Sports World to the Business World,” will not only illustrate what it takes to become the best of the best, it will also explore the fine line between cheating and gamesmanship in sports as it relates to values and integrity in the workplace. Champions have a very unique DNA… who are the champions on your team? (www.rossbernsteinspeaking.com).
