Day 34: Hard Coaching
It may be more complex than that, and most likely is, but at the same time it typically doesn’t have to be.
There are always things we can do individually to change our results or better our chances, but in the days of convenience and let’s be real mediocrity and complacency it continues to be an easier out for many to want to restrict and regulate others because they are unwilling to make good healthy choices for themselves consistently over long periods of time.
Chew on that for a bit…
Which brings me to the ONE LEADERSHIP TIP today:
Which Im starting to figure out that many of you don’t have the attention spans long enough to actually get to, being caught up in the first half of the message which probably reinforces my message above..
As my good lad up north, Karl always says, ANYHOO
Hard coaching is only as good as the ability of the players to receive it.
As a coach and a leader it also behooves you to:
1. Know your people
2. Know that not everyone nor should everyone respond to ONE leadership, communication, coaching style
3. Getting the right people on board is all that more important to find the folks that can respond well to hard coaching
4. Know your team/audience aka 8th-grade girls basketball vs NFL football means hard coaching looks very different.
With all that said I do believe that as a coach and leader, and as a teammate and follower it’s on everyone to understand why they are there, the role the play, the rules that are to be played by, and a fair amount of thick skin all with the vision present mind on why they are there in the first place.
