Unless your sport is Squash, you’ve probably never heard of Paul Assaiante. Yet, he is THE winningest coach in the history of college sports. As the head coach of the Trinity College Squash Team, over the past ten years he has been quietly building a legacy of teamwork, leadership and success that is unparalleled. Because of his dedication, Trinity now holds the record for the longest winning streak of any college team, in any sport in history. Coach Assaiante’s personal belief in embracing fear in order to remove the obstacles to success is also a key factor in his success. Through the years, he has learned that successfully achieving goals can only happen when you help people to learn to deal with overcoming their fears, which block their success. Coach Assaiante says “What you fear owns you. Until you can free yourself from these chains- success and the joy of the journey cannot be realized”. Passion for touching people, skill at building successful teams and the personal belief in embracing fear have all led him to the podium, where he delivers his powerful messages to corporate audiences, public forums and young adults across the country.
