What Would Ted Lasso Do

What Would Ted Lasso Do

What would Ted Lasso Do? We have been asking ourselves this question to get us through the day, to get us through this past year, and to help us navigate the surreal time in which we live. In this podcast, not only do we geek out on Ted Lasso, but we do it through the lens of positive psychology and leadership. Some may see this as just a show, but we have found life-altering lessons in each episode and break them down so you don’t have to. So, whether you’re a diehard TedHead, new to the fandom, fascinated with the world of Positive Psychology, or just want to be a better leader, come along on this rollercoaster journey with us. Together, we can begin to learn what it actually means to BELIEVE.

Host

Jeff Harry shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves, to feel their happiest and most fulfilled — all by playing.

Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day.

Jeff is an international speaker who has presented at conferences such as INBOUND, SXSW, and Australia’s Pausefest, showing audiences how major issues in the workplace can be solved using play.

Jeff was selected by Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers of 2020 for his organizational development work around addressing toxicity in the workplace.

His playwork has been featured in the New York Times, AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle, and CNN.

While we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it's when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens. Fully embracing your own nerdy genius — whatever that is — gives you the power to make a difference and change lives.

Jeff believes that we already have many of the answers we seek, and by simply unleashing our inner child, we can find our purpose and, in turn, help to create a better world.
