GEMS from Mike Babcock Interview

I came across this MACLEANS article and wanted to share it with every coach out there interested in changing the culture of his/her hockey team in a rebuild phase. The author of this Q & A with Coach Mike Babcock is Jonathan Gatehouse (October 2, 2015).

This is a short article but there are some important messages about working with players and the process of creating confidence.  Mike shares important thoughts to turn the Toronto Maple Leafs franchise around and back competing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and maybe winning one or two Cups during his tenure. I liked what he had to say and think the Leafs should get full value for their hefty investment in him but they will have to be patient. Mike Babcock is the right hockey guy for this job, no doubt.  I knew about his track record but captured by his words in the article. The link:
