    254 Teaching versus Telling

    As coaches, should our words and instructions differ from that being yelled from the bleachers by fans or parents? Are we telling players what to do or teaching them how to do it? Join JP and Nate as they discuss strategies to improve coaching methods.

    √ You haven’t taught until they’ve learned

    √ Become better teachers, not better tellers

    √ Opportunity cost of implementing this over that

Amazing Podcast

To find a coaching podcast which emphasizes being a transformational leader and setting our athletes up for success both in and out of sports has been truly amazing. JP and Nate do a great job of finding quality people to interview and take you on a journey with them which will lead to a better version of us as coaches and hopefully the best version of our kids as both athletes and young adults. Thank you so much for what you do. I am extremely grateful I found this podcast!

No longer alone

It's beautiful to find a group of people that are openly and freely talking about the things that can make those feel very alone or lost when coaching. I appreciate how they bring up the hard things, tell their own personal stories, but above all, approach their ideas in the most wide-reaching and encouraging manner. I really enjoy their different takes on the multiple topics that go into being a better coach and person, and the very cool guests they bring on are just an awesome added bonus! They evoke thoughtfulness and challenge us coaches to be better and I'm so here for it!

Thank you guys for going beyond straight game skills and really investing in the most important parts, please don't stop!!

A Must listen Podcast

Absolutely one of the best podcasts out there for leadership in general. A lot of the content is basketball driven but you can apply these concepts in any work environment that requires leadership. Keep up the great content !
