Former Pro Women’s Soccer Player Lindsay Henson Shares Insight on Creating Business Teams with a Refuse to Lose Mindset

Arlington, Va., November 5, 2019 – Eagle Hill Consulting released the latest episode of its podcast, cultur(ED), that helps business leaders create a winning and resilient business culture. Episode Four features former professional women’s soccer Lindsay Henson, who played for the Washington Freedom and now is a Director with Eagle Hill. Lindsay provides insight on how the culture lessons she learned from top soccer leaders at both the collegiate and professional levels carry over to her work with building winning business teams and cultures.

“In watching Lindsay’s career progress, it is clear she’s been an integral part of teams with world-class coaches and players like Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach who created cultures that lift every teammate to achieve at their highest potential,” said Melissa Jezior, the host of cultur(ED) and CEO of Eagle Hill Consulting. “Lindsay brings that experience to her work teams and clients – creating a refuse to lose mindset with fierce competitors who also know how to be good teammates. Lindsay explains how like on the soccer field, it’s essential to create a culture where everyone knows the goals, their roles, and contributes 100 percent to the team objective.”

Considered one of the top high school soccer players in the U.S., Lindsay played under legendary coach Anson Dorrance at the University of North Carolina. She then played professional soccer with the Washington Freedom, a team founded in 2001 under the Women’s United Soccer Association. Now a working mom, Lindsay is one of Eagle Hill’s top leaders, bringing the valuable lessons of her soccer career to the workplace.
