As 2016 winds down, here is a powerful exercise to do with your team…
Have each player and coach answer the following 3 questions anonymously on index cards. Have them fill one out for every player and coach on the team (so if you have 14 players and 4 coaches, each person will complete 17 of these index cards).
PLAYER / COACH NAME
- What are you doing well that is helping our team?
- What is something you should start doing to help us be more successful?
- What is something you should consider stopping to help us be more successful?
Then tally, look for trends and openly discuss.
