Recently, I was asked how I would define my record as a head coach. The person wanted me to explain my won-loss record. How would YOU define your record? Would YOU use numbers or names? One of the most popular questions of a head coach at the start of a new season is how will your team do this year? Most coaches will respond with a prediction of how many games they will have a chance to win or lose (numbers). I believe we are asking the wrong question. It is not how your team will do this year but who your team (names) will become in twenty years. How YOU answer this question will affect the way YOU coach!
Transformational coaches see through performance (numbers) and recognize growth (names)!
