We've got a very special edition of the Glass and Out podcast for you this week.

To celebrate our announcement of TCS Live, our return to an in-person hockey coaches conference taking place June 15-17 at the University of Michigan, we're taking a look back one of our favourite presentations from our 2012 Hockey Coaches Conference. Mike Keenan is a man who truly needs no introduction. The Stanley Cup, Calder Cup and Canada Cup champion is one of the most iconic figures in hockey. While it’s fair to say that a lot of Iron Mike’s methods wouldn’t fly today, what stood out most during his talk on "Having a Sense of Mission" was his ability to own the room. He clearly has that "it" factor that you can't teach and every great leader has. During the talk, he shares stories from his personal coaching journey and stresses the importance of creating expectations for your team and reinforcing those expectations on a daily basis. You won't want to miss this one!
