Building Self-Esteem and Team

Read about the sports coaching techniques of the renowned coaches of the past and present, they can find ways of fulfilling those goals.
U.C.L.A. bench players under Coach John Wooden developed self-esteem because they felt as if they were important parts of the team, despite the fact that they did not play often. How did he accomplish this? He accomplished this by explaining to his team that a team is like a smooth-running car. He told them that even the minor components of the vehicle must operate correctly for it all to work. All parts of the car (team) were important and not just the engine (star players). In fact, without the minor parts of the team functioning and pushing the stars, the star players, and the team would never reach their potential. In this manner Coach Wooden convinced all his players of their importance and thereby built up their self-worth.
