As I drink a cold brew coffee and realize Michelle has finished her probationary period, and will once again have the title of Coach, I think about what it means to be a good coach….so many things. Ultimately, it’s how we communicate with each athlete.
No one wants a talking to; not the speaker, not the listener — not because there’s nothing to say, but only about the impact words. Has a filler word ever actually done anything, but be filling?
Let us be master distillers. We want words with meaning, words that land.
This brings more invested listeners and careful speakers. We’ll be thoughtful. We’ll challenge our thoughts, cold pressed through the finest filters for quality. What will be left it an atmosphere of healthy, invigorating words flying free of crowding and nonsense.
My words then for you today are: chase challenge, fail honestly, and never quit.
