My Name is Harlan Hodge and I am a Chess and Character Coach. I teach lessons of character through the game of Chess. Much of my success in life can be traced back to the lessons the game of Chess has taught me. From planning before you move to never underestimating your opposition, these lessons have contributed to my successful navigation through poverty, graduate school and business.
Ironically, the game of Chess for me is not just a game, it is an opportunity for us to examine ourselves, form relationships with others, and to develop sound principles for life. In the next few segments, I would like to share with you 10 of the Most Valuable Character Lessons Chess Has Taught Me.
