Rookie & The Vet: Building a winning culture with Mike Johnston
Show Notes

There is a lot of talk about culture and how you need to build a "winning" one within your organization. I've never heard a more tactical game plan on how to achieve this than listening to Mike Johnston.

Mike Johnston is the Vice President, General Manager, and Head Coach of the Portland Winterhawks. He's held positions at the Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and many other hockey organizations...but most importantly he turned the Winterhawks organization around in just a few short years into a winning powerhouse.

This week we dive in with him on how he builds teams, prospects, and build a culture with his team. There's a huge amount of carryover to our jobs in sports & sponsorship.
