No matter how great a coach you are and how amazing your team is, every team goes through plateaus and valleys during the season. The question isn't if it's going to happen...it's when.
Remember: plateaus and valleys are a normal part of team development. They also can be where the biggest lessons are learned and the most growth takes place.
While you can't control your athletes - all the things they are thinking and all the good or bad decisions they make - you can control yourself and offer these three things:
- Be proactive
- Be consistent
- Be vulnerable
