The Daily Coach was co-founded in 2019 by Coach George Raveling, Michael Lombardi, and Kimati Ramsey. The Daily Coach newsletter aims to provide a daily, hands-on approach to becoming a better leader through the wisdom and action plans provided by our writers. The Daily Coach team believes that leading first starts with leading yourself, so whether you're an executive, teacher, or parent... Everyone is a coach.
