Life Lessons for Athletes – Redefining the Term Athlete
Have standards, not rules. The clearer behavioral standards are defined, the better chance athletes will rise to them. In order for individual athletes and teams to reach their potential they must have clearly identified expectations for team behaviors. This presentation clearly defines the following characteristics in athletic, age appropriate terms; Discipline, Teachable Spirit, Mental Toughness, Accountability, Integrity, Selflessness, Pride and Humility.
 
 
 7 Ways to Lead Your Team
Do not leave leadership of your teams to chance, teach and empower your captains how to lead successfully. This presentation applies seven principles of leadership. 1) Be the first to serve, 2) Be the first to lead by example, 3) Be a lifeline of communication between the coach and the team, 4) Be the first to praise others, 5) Be the first to protect and defend your team (loyalty), 6)Be the first to confront violations of your team standards (solving problems before they impact your team), and 7) Be the first to encourage and the last to become discouraged (mental toughness).  
 
We encourage you to invite all of your coaches, activity advisors, teachers, community leaders, and community members to attend these sessions.  They are valuable to growing positive athletic programs, cultures of excellence, and a better sense of responsibility and accountability. 
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  I am happy to help.
