Making My Message Stick

February 26th, 2016 | Uncategorized

Leaders are often faced with challenging responsibilities regarding the management of groups, employees, and teams.  I am the head coach of the Andersontown Tigers 16U team and delivering my coaching message effectively to fifteen boys all whom have different personalities can be a challenge.  I have players with personalities ranging from being reserved to social butterflies.  What has helped me to make my coaching style effective is the time off the court observing my players and seeing who they are and how the interact with each other.  I have found that my players off the court personalities often times transfer to who they are on the court.  I now understand why my college coach spent so much time with my team off the court.  It can be difficult changing your message up when speaking to multiple players at one time so I take mental notes of who may need what outside of the initial deliverance of the message.  My coaching experience thus far has been fun, exciting, and a true learning experience for me.  I have been blessed to have a team of players who have been very receptive and able to pick things up quickly.  This team journey has been filled with nothing but growth from the coaching staff to the players.  #GoTigers “To God Be The Glory”
