Coaching Character comes with the role of being a coach. If you’re not interested in helping a player develop as a person & an athlete, find something else to do with your time. Whether you are coaching amateurs or professionals you are working with people and you have a chance to make a huge difference in the lives of the people you coach.
Intimidation doesn’t work because it prevents the coach from building trust and respect.
Find the time to get to know every player and how best to communicate and motivate them to improve as a person and athlete. Punishment should always be a last resort. The player must know you genuinely care about them as a person and a player.
