Transcript for What effect ‘Ted Lasso’ is having on coaches
I'm not saying which one. Our "Gma" cover story and the so-called "Ted lasso" the 20-time Emmy nominated comedy about an optimistic soccer coach is making its mark with the pros. It's a story we first saw in "The Wall Street journal." Will reeve is back with that story for us. Good morning, again, will. Reporter: Hello, again, robin. One of the most memorable scenes in "Ted lasso" has the coach tacking up a sign in the locker room that says believe and it might sound like a cheesy motivational gimmick but spoiler alert. It works, the team comes together and real-life coaches are incorporaing lasso tactics of their own. It's called the "Ted lasso" effect. Named for the perpetually optimistic character from the Jason sudeikis hit comedy "Ted lasso." I want you to know that I value each of your opinions even when they're wrong. Reporter: A soccer coach who knows little about soccer but a lot about life. Wow. You know what the happiest animal on Earth is? It's a goldfish. You know why? Got a ten-second memory. Be a goldfish, Sam That's the responsibility for all the coaches that are out there regardless of what age they're coaching and goes to the same for managers in the office. That should be our goal, how do we get the best out of the people around us. Reporter: The show's writers finding their own inspiration with greats like Gregg Popovich and Phil Jackson. I believe in belief. Reporter: Chris Paul said he binged it between games and Monty Williams and Mike budenholzer bring a lasso ethos to the game. With scene stealers like this. For me success is not about the wins and losses. It's about helping these young fellas be the best versions of themselves on and off the field. Reporter: Life lessons all of us can get behind. MVP, MVP. MVP. Reporter: A few more lasso lessons for coaching and in life, be curious and not judgmental. Try to be caring and empathetic and be positive. You want to create an environment that people want to be a part of on and of the field. Guys. All of that makes a whole lot of sense. All right, will, get on home. Thanks so much. Appreciate it.
