It’s Not About You

Despite what some coaches think it is not about you the coach. Lest we forget, it is about the athlete. Any good program recognizes that it is athlete centered and coach driven. The athlete is the reason we are coaching. Our effectiveness as a coach and the athlete’s success is highly dependent on our emotional intelligence. It is how we communicate, how we motivate that helps propel the athlete to greatness. Technical knowledge is important but if you can’t impart that knowledge what good is it. Step back and put the spotlight squarely on the athlete and do everything ethically in your power to get them to be the best they can be. And don’t forget it is a journey.
