Developing Coaches: The “Storied” Coach

Eclipse coaches met up earlier this month for a coach development meeting on the topic of using the power of story to communicate with and inspire their players. Coaches learned about ways to understand each individual player’s past to benefit their present development and help them set future goals. The power of story telling can be used as a way for coaches to set their players on a journey where they can be the heroes. When coaches use the power of communication, they can inspire things such as confidence, bravery, and risk-taking in their players. The training fit perfectly into the Eclipse mission of developing our kids both as players and as people. Thanks to Scott Stiefvater for the awesome presentation!
