Empowering Players as LeadersMar 26, 2023
As coaches, we should strive to empower our players and help them develop into leaders both on and off the field. This means giving them responsibilities, encouraging them to take ownership of their performance, and modeling good leadership ourselves.
When we empower our players, we create a team culture that values everyone's contributions and ideas. Our players will feel more invested in the success of the team and will be more likely to work together to achieve their goals.
Empowering players also means allowing them to make mistakes and learn from them. When we give our players the freedom to take risks and learn from their failures, we help them develop the skills they need to succeed both in sports and in life.
