Redefining Success: Legendary Gymnastics Coach Valorie Kondos Field Joins The Lavin Agency
Though she’s never done a flip in her life, gymnastics coach Valorie Kondos Field knows a thing or two about how to mentor, motivate, and lead high-performance teams. In her vibrant, anecdote-filled talks, she reveals the unorthodox methods that got her to the top.
Is there a difference between winning and success? This is an essential question for Valorie Kondos Field, the UCLA gymnastics coach that led her team to championship victory a career-defining seven times. It might seem as though the answer is obvious, but to Kondos Field, success is not defined by a medal or a prize; it comes from from the “peace of mind in knowing you’ve done your best.”
The win-at-all-costs mentality occuring in athletics and business today can incur frightful collateral damage, Kondos Field warns. Throughout her career, she’s made sure to approach coaching differently: nurturing the people on her team as whole individuals—rather than just competitors—in order to bring out their best. In her talks, she distills the lessons of her decades-long professional career, helping leaders and individuals strive for excellence in every aspect of their lives.
