Eye contact, leadership, excitement, hustle. Look for changes in behavior. Noticing behavior differences and asking questions let's the players know you careSlump-busting Riptide concept - When caught in a riptide, initial reaction is to panic and try to swim against it. The panic is normal - so first step is to calm down. Take a few breaths. Then instead of trying harder and fighting the current - have a recovery ritual (flick your wrist, wipe your shoe,etc.) - that reminds you to get back into the present moment and re-focusChampionship Culture  Starts with respect. Relationships and respect are the cornerstones.Connecting with and impacting kids Every kid is different - it's important to individualize how you are connecting with  each kid and to ask questions and listen to their needsThe one that got away Meighan worked with one athlete who afterwards told her that it was too much info and too much to think about. Less is better - don't overwhelm your athletes and keep it simple.Best borrowed/stolen idea A coach brought in Meighan to help the communication on his team. The activity went horrible. Meighan called to apologize the next day and the coach told her 'we are terrible at communicating - your activity made that clear to our team. Sometimes exercises we do don't work - but they still serve a purpose.' Meighan took that advise to realize that not everything will go as we plan, but that's ok, keep trying and keep learning and keep tweaking.Favorite coaching book/quote Book: Creative Coaching by Dr. Jerry LynchThe Mindside Team workshops Individual athletes one-on-one sessions Coaching development Videos, podcasts Website/Books: themindside.comParting Advice Be patient, with your players - let them think and struggle and learn, and with expectations of yourself--Reviews are the lifeblood of the podcast!- If you like the podcast- please take 2 minutes to write a review! Click here- Ready to be an Awesome Youth Coach?
