Be the leader that you would want

Do you aspire to be the captain of your team? Maybe you are just starting out in coaching and are excited to make an impact. Leadership on and off the court used to be centered on the leader, commanding attention and making their voice heard,

“I am the leader look at me! Listen to me and do what I say!”

But today that type of authority doesn’t win much commitment or sacrifice from others. Instead, today’s best leaders find ways to notice others and demonstrate their willingness to listen. Great team leaders search for ways to make their teammates the focus of the cheers. At its heart, leadership is selfless, not selfish. So whether you are on or off the court, find ways to lift others up and you just might find yourself in leadership.
