As coaches, we must be aware of the influence we have on our athletes. Our behaviors and our responses to different types of situations are observed and often copied by our athletes.
In the same way, those personal emotions that we are not able to manage, not only affect us, but also affect those around us.
Our moods and our behaviors will positively or negatively influence our athletes. The key for one or the other is ours.
We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond to different circumstances. With discipline. With courage. Seeing what happens to us as an opportunity to grow and become stronger. Protecting our own people.
Leadership is not a rank, but the ability we have as coaches to take responsibility for our athletes and our team.
Managing our emotions will help us in our relationships. This management can only be done by us. With discipline. With courage.
