If You Have This, They Will Follow

 
Speak with a spark, teach with a joy!
 
Whether you know your stuff or not when coaching a sport, have this and others will follow. Few things are more important than enthusiasm when coaching any level of sport. Giving at least the impression, if not the reality, that there is no where else you would rather be and no group you would rather be teaching is an absolute of coaching.
 
Enthusiasm:
• Is infectious. It inspires others to meet the same level of vitality and brings out a better effort. Words and actions can resonate with others when they are tinged with excitement.
• Gives initial respect and the benefit of the doubt to the coaches during difficult times.
• Does not allow others to get too down on themselves
Always learn to show excitement and enjoyment, and that means after losing; you will have a much smoother ride.
