As a result, Chot once again was named the National Team Head Coach, tasked with leading the Philippines to the 2014 FIBA World Championships in Spain. All of the teams Chot coached to victory were completely different from each other – in terms of talent, size, depth and experience. The one constant has been their ability to work together as a team. While all coaches preach teamwork, Chot’s teams live and breathe it. The only Filipino member of the International Advisory Board of the United States Basketball Academy and a member of the Board of the Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines, Chot quotes legendary coach John Wooden, “I may not be the best or brightest coach. But the one thing I do better than most is my ability to teach a group of individuals to work with ONE HEARTBEAT.” Having gone through intensive business and corporate coaching education in London and New York, Chot has been providing executive coaching to executives (including expats) of various top 500 corporations in the Philippines. He conducts regular coach mentorship programs to middle managers of companies in the insurance, banking, retail, manufacturing, BPO, and telecommunications industries.
