The Most Valuable Ziplock Bag of Air Ever?

This packaging case study involves a lot of hoopla and several diverse inputs: Kobe’s last game, an air-filled ziplock bag and oxygen transmission rates.

The coaching stance is a tool used to help a partner to think and problem solve a situation through non-judgmental dialogue with the coach.
