The time and work George and A Leading Mind put into helping our team has already proven to be an invaluable resource to our program. From the day George stepped on to campus to work with us coaches and the team I have seen so many benefits: personally, as a coaching staff, and as a team. Practices following our training had a different feel to them, we all took a different approach and one that helped us produce some of our best practices we have had in a post season. I am extremely excited to see how this team will do this upcoming season with our new way of thinking and approach to the year to come.
Coaches— let’s face it. Coaching in today’s world is more difficult than it has ever been leaving you searching for answers. The endless attempts to motivate, gain buy-in, get kids to understand their role and sometimes even just want to compete and be part of the team. The results impact you as a Coach who truly want to help the kids be great players, succeed in your program and become leaders on and off the court. Am I right? This is leaving you frustrated and searching for answers. You have attended all of the latest X’s and O’s workshops, read the latest best book, and attended the same old workshops….still with no results.
The “Yell and Tell” approach to coaching is not effective with today’s student athletes. Instilling fear is proven to hinder learning and player development. Small shifts in coaching methods based on an understanding of how the brain works can change your program.
