One of the signs of a great athlete is consistency. Most athletes will have a great game every now and then, but truly great athletes are always performing to their potential. As an Athletic Director, you’re looking to build a stable, successful program in the long term, not just a successful team for the season. Which means you need a steady stream of athletes with perseverance and enthusiasm — but how do you ensure your teams are full of athletes with a great attitude and strong work ethic?
These players with perseverance have a specific mindset, which we call a success mindset, which empowers them and fuels their progress. By leading with that same success mindset, your coaches can develop more of these valuable players, better position their teams for a successful season and build a youth sports culture that is positive and focused throughout all seasons.
Coaching with a success mindset means you’ll create consistency from team to team, program to program, year to year. Position your coaches to have the best opportunity to build a successful team with these four techniques for building predictable players.
