Overview: Kurt starts part one of a three-part series discussing the culture of winning. While tasting Founder Brewery’s Breakfast Stout, Kurt discusses a presentation given by UNC Women’s Soccer Coach Anson Dorrance on Grading Character and its effect on success. Join us to see how culture and character shape success.
Culture & Character
1) Anson Dorrance – UNC Women’s Soccer Head Coach
Anson Dorrance has led the UNC Tar Heels to win a mind-blowing 22 of the 38 national championships that have been decided in the history of collegiate women’s soccer. Reaching the National Championship 24 times, his winning percentage against the best teams in the country is well over 90%.
2) Finding a Reason to Excel
Finding and recruiting talented individuals that are driven to win is only half the battle. Establishing a culture of competitiveness that develops high-character contributors towards a common goal is often the difference between good and great.
3) Building Culture
At UNC, Anson attaches motivational quotes to 12 core values for which all members are evaluated against by their peers. An example of one of UNC’s core values is:
We Don’t Whine
“The true joy in life is to be a force of fortune instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” – George Bernard Shaw
What Drives Winning | Grading Character – Anson Dorrance
TEDx Talk | Start with Why – Simon Sinek

The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
