After taking home 11 national championships, two Olympic gold medals and the second-most wins of any coach in Division I women’s basketball, it’s fair to say UConn women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma knows a thing or two about winning.

Now, you can learn his recipe for success via MasterClass.

Auriemma has released a 15-part series called “Geno Auriemma Teaches Leading Winning Teams” on the video platform where subscribers can watch lectures and tutorials from world-famous experts on everything from acting to writing to cooking and more.

According to MasterClass, Auriemma’s series “teach[es] members how to connect the foundational lessons of teamwork and communication with their everyday leadership practices, such as setting communal goals, giving critical feedback, tracking progress and leading under pressure.”

The class, which was released on Thursday, features videos on how to be a resilient leader, how to attract and keep top talent, performing under pressure and more.

Each lesson, including one where former Husky Renee Montgomery makes a cameo, ranges from six to 19 minutes.

“Geno has been named AP College Basketball Coach of the Year nine times and has taken home 11 national basketball championships. Arguably the greatest coach in college basketball history, there’s no question he knows how to lead a team,” MasterClass founder and CEO David Rogier said in a release. “Now he’s sharing his approach to being a resilient leader who motivates with empathy and grit to bring out the best in any team — whether in sports, at work or in the community.”

The strategies and lessons Auriemma conveys in the series apply to any settings involving leaders and teams, not just those in the sports realm.

“Teams are teams, no matter what situation,” Auriemma says in the series’ trailer. “It’s a group of people trying to come together to do something that they can’t do individually. ... It’s the same in sports, it’s the same in business, and it’s the same in life.”

MasterClass memberships run from $15 to $23 per month, depending on the subscription plan. More information can be found at https://www.masterclass.com/.
