Have you developed your coaching character? What does it take to have coaching character?
I found a really good article on coaching character.
According to the article,
It all starts with your Philosophy.
You have to answer some simple questions and develop a philosophy.
A consistent approach and routine is key to the teams acceptance and integration of your philosophy. If you foster an environment of encouragement, you must teach and demonstrate what that means. You have to become and live what you preach. All kids need to be encouraged and appreciated to be motivated.
Here are the 4 steps to creating a consistent philosophy.
- Create Clear Expectations
- Speak clearly and point out what you like.
- Acknowledge the kids that are struggling by had a small breakthrough.
- Educate your team on Character
