Episode 21: Great Expectations

We’ve all seen coach-athlete relationships break down, and rarely does it have to do with the abilities of the coach or athlete. Instead it often comes down to expectations not being fulfilled by one party. Nick Garcia discussed this topic in a blog post last week, providing some questions coaches and athletes should address to build a strong relationship. But being a complex topic, it warrants deeper discussion (and my two cents on the topic). So on this week’s episode we discuss what coaches and athletes should expect from each other and how they can both work to improve communication and strengthen the relationship.
