What Athletes Remember Most About Coaches
When it is all over, what will your athletes remember about you?
Your terrific technique?
The number of elites you trained?
The incredible advice you doled out?
As Maya Angelou is quoted, “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”
Or as Lori Gard writes about teachers: They will remember you.
They will remember things like:
You being supportive.
You being patient.
You being kind.
You being positive.
You being compassionate.
You being inspirational.
You being fair.
You being joyful.
You being genuine.
You being passionate.
You being silly.
You being approachable.
You being accommodating.
You being interesting.
You being loving.
Coaches, it’s not the technique, the medals or even the skills that they will remember.
It is you.
