WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AN EFFECTIVE LEADERMay 17, 2017
There are many philosophies on what it means to be a great leader, but I believe that one trait sets some apart from others.
A great leader doesn’t just tell their athletes what to do, they show them the way. Showing instead of telling is a huge asset as a leader, and will gain you the respect necessary to get the best out of your athletes (or any area of your life).
The most effective leaders do not see themselves above any task that they ask of their athletes. For example, if I ask my athletes to clean the mats after practice, I will get down and help them do it. There is nothing to big or too small for an effective leader to walk alongside and offer guidance.
