PREGAME: MEET COACH ED DECOSTA
Ed DeCosta is one of the most engaging executive coaches and thought leaders of our time. As a dynamic speaker, trainer and coach he works with startups to Fortune 500 companies. He has shared the stage with John Maxwell, Darren Hardy, Less Brown and Nick Vujicic. Ed publishes a long-standing weekly coaching blog, and also hosts a weekly YouTube show called “Get Edified.”
The first time I saw Ed on stage he was quick to say “My name is Ed DeCosta and I am not your friend.” I consider Ed my friend and more importantly my mentor.
