It’s hard to believe that a “new year” is upon us. The school year was and still is for me, that time of year when we set our goals, intentions, and generally try to gain some clarity. Whether you are a coach or company executive, it’s really quite a refreshing time. Furthermore, I look forward to the crisp weather of fall which invigorates me.
Many things influence us as we start our fall journey - new recruits, new staff, ambitious schedules, new uniforms, team chemistry, family, friends and the list goes on. A plan to get us to our goal is set in place. Yet with all these influences, we keep coming back to the people. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
We know that getting to “success” depends upon our people. “How do we get them to be high performing team members and teams”? “How do build their TRUST”? Sherri Coales, Head Women’s Basketball Coach of Oklahoma, talks about how student-athletes and I’d add coaches, must “find their voice”.
