World Cup winner, Motivational speaker, author and CEO OF VIVO Resorts
I never would have become a World Cup Champion without the leadership of Max Gartner. He is a coach that cares more about people, than results. But he actually gets better results than anyone else. Compassion, Expertise, and Strategy are how I describe his greatest strengths. I'm so glad that more people get to benefit from "Gold METTLE" approaches.
One coach did not take Kerrin Lee-Gartner on the provincial team, "because she didn't have the talent". Well 'having talent' and 'optimizing talent' are two entirely different things, and great coaches know the difference. Through Kerrin's undeniable drive and coach-ability she made it on to the National team. There she joined forces with a coach that knew how to optimize talent. Together they molded the Gold METTLE strategies that ultimately enabled her to have an advantage over her competition. She went on to become one of Canada's greatest heroes and an Olympic Gold Medal Champion.
