Championship teams have great leadership. They have great leadership from coaches and players. Coaches must help players become more effective leaders. Teaching leadership is just as important, or more so, than anything else you teach in your program. Your ability to train your team leaders will be directly correlated to your success. In the two clips below Greg Dale,Director of Mental Training and Leadership Programs for Duke University Athletics, discuss how to begin the process of developing your team leaders.
The clips are from a DVD entilted The Coach’s Guide to Developing Great Team Captains. For more ideas on developing leaders click on the link above.
