My Thoughts Monday #150- If You Aren’t Collaborating With Your Staff, What’s That Say?

“It’s hard to give up that final say because I think a lot of of still have that “get off my lawn” mentality.”

This My Thoughts Monday is brought to you by Vald Performance. Vald’s constant drive to help coaches find better information to drive more educated directions is second to none. Check out this weeks Metric Minute and make sure to go check out all their great products at: www.valdperformance.com

This past weekend I have spend a good amount of time reflecting on these past four weeks and how the progression we built to help reintroduce our athletes to sport in this return to play process. Other then just looking at the actual X’s and O’s of the program and where we go next, one thing really resonated with me, and that is how different this program was from the norm for me, and the huge impact of allowing other people on our staff contribute to this. In this weeks My Thoughts Monday I share my feelings on this collaboration process and why I feel we still have a hard time doing this even thought it has been a “sexy” topic dating back to the last BSMPG meeting.
