You can teach an old dog new tricks! You can even teach a coach new tricks, too!
You’re never too old to learn! The way you approach new challenges and your attitude to learning impacts how much you will grow and improve as a coach.
In the diagram there are a number of statements related to how some coaches think about challenges in their coaching responsibilities.
Are there any statements you can resonate with in your coaching?
The right-hand-side of the diagram are statements from a ‘fixed’ mindset – a coach who is set in his/her way. The left-hand side are statements from a “growth” mindset—a coach who responds with control and responsibility.
We hope you will have a season of great growth! Take on each challenge wholeheartedly willing to grow your team and your own mindset. Have a great season, Coach!!
