I saw an article from a friend talking about his daughter’s former basketball coach. Seems the coach is highly appreciated by many people (except her team).
It seems that a number of former players have quit, complaining about her tactics and overbearing personality of the coach. Basically I get the feeling that she is a blatant bully.
Now every good coach is going to be demanding. Every good coach is going to push their team hard.
But here is the rub:
Any good player can tell if the coach really cares about the team and each individual’s development.
For those coaches who really care about their players, they get rewarded with loyalty and effort beyond their imagining.
For those coaches who care more about themselves and their own standing they get, well, people leaving.
