44. Having "Favorites" and Determining Your Values

44. Having "Favorites" and Determining Your Values

Have you ever been accused of "having favorites" as a volleyball coach? If the answer is "no," it's probably just a matter of time!  In this episode, I break down my theory on why players sometimes struggle with the decisions their coaches make.  Deciding playing time, making your team, choosing captains... You can make these decisions easier on yourself and clearer for your players by first defining your values, sharing those values, and therefore giving players the framework they need to grow. Ultimately, this will reduce accusations of favoritism from players and parents.  Please review the podcast and share it with a coaching friend! —————— MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE —————— How to Make Hard Choices, a TED Talk by Ruth Chang: https://www.ted.com/talks/ruth_chang_how_to_make_hard_choices#t-1161052 "Volleyball Coaches Corner" closed Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/322963254922796/ —————— HELPFUL RESOURCES —————— 📖 “Coaching Volleyball: A Survival Guide for Your First Season": https://amzn.to/2LGqVRw 🏆 Volleyball Goal Setting Packet: https://getthepancake.com/products/volleyball-season-goals-worksheets 📋 Coaching beginner volleyball players?
