There are three things that always hold true for teams: they all struggle, they all have untapped talent, and most of them haven’t defined their success. That’s where Maureen Monte steps in. With a background in corporate team building and a commitment to seeing young athletes succeed, she has found her place helping others reach their full potential. This week, she talks about leadership and team development and shares tips for finding success in sports, work, and everyday life.

Monte has dedicated her life to facilitating these types of conversations among young athletes and employees alike. But while sports teams, especially, might define success as winning a particular championship or game, that’s not what defines the word for Monte herself. “I want them to win at the long game of life,” she says. She hopes the skills they learn now will serve them well whether they pursue athletics, the corporate world, or college down the line.

For Dartmouth Coach Spencer Brown, it comes down to owning your results. As both player and coach, you have the choice to put in whatever effort you can to build a strong framework for success. It doesn’t matter how tired you are, or if you’re facing a challenge in your life, so long as when you’re at practice or in a game, you try your best. In this week’s episode, Brown talks about leadership qualities, personal empowerment, and making competition fun, both in sports and in everyday life.

Being a coach is about more than just the short time you see your players every day, he says. It’s about instilling values in them and empowering them to make good choices on their own time from morning until night. If they can learn positive habits and decision-making skills in sports, they can carry those forward into their future relationships and pursuits. No detail is too small to ignore, he says. From warm-up to the end of practice, and even the moments they spend at home, every minute counts.

All children are different. They have their own interests and hobbies, and their own unique dreams they want to pursue when they grow up. Some kids will choose to continue playing sports as they get older, while others will take a different path. That’s why it’s important to listen to them as they grow and share with you what makes them happy and fulfilled. This week, Asia Mape, founder of I Love To Watch You Play, shares tips on cultivating a healthy enjoyment of sports in kids of all ages.

There will be plenty of time for athletes to focus on the competitive rigours of the game as they move up to higher levels. But for kids to want to stick with sports, they have to have fun doing it. As parents, it’s important to keep that in mind as you encourage them. Sometimes, it will be up to you to step in and advocate for your child, so they carry the love of playing forward into the future. It all comes down to leading by example and making small changes along the way that add up in the end to positive results.

If you don't have a clear picture of where you're trying to go, how can you ever expect to get there?

Most people float through life, expecting to "just arrive" at their dream destination. Competitors treat life like an expert sailor - they set a course, follow the stars, adjust during storms, and know exactly where they're headed.

For Iowa State Associate Head Volleyball Coach Jen Malcom, sports have been a lifelong passion. As a child, she played softball, basketball, volleyball, and did track. She also watched her own parents coach team sports. When she was in college, she learned from their example and started to coach, as well as play. The shift taught her to see the game from a different perspective when she was challenged to explain new things and bring together players in a group that works together well and can rely on one another.

This week, she shares tips for building strong teams and supporting players from varying backgrounds. It’s important to have a thick skin, she says, and learn to roll with the punches. You also have to be proud of what you accomplish and put your all into learning and growing with the game. And finally, as a coach, you have to understand how you can impact the lives of the players you work with. Taking responsibility for your potential and accountability for your actions can make all the difference, whether you’re on the court or behind the team.

Many people mistakenly believe that “competing every day” requires you to buy into the hustle & grind, GO-GO-GO culture that says there are no off-days in life.

Contrary to that idea, you can’t actually compete at your best unless you learn to rest. “Competing” isn’t about working out daily or grinding in your business 24/7.

It’s about working every day to improve on the day before – mentally as much as physically.

Be reminded about this important truth to rest & how it allows us to lead better & be at our best for those we serve.

Especially in a challenging year like 2020, it can be tough to identify all the things you are grateful for. But the same adversity can also help set the stage for recognizing the good in your life and the support structures that have helped you along the way. This week, Dr. Nicole Gabana talks about the importance of gratitude and why it’s key to performance in both sports and everyday life.

Gratitude has the power to positively impact our mental health and happiness, and it’s a skill that can be practiced daily. Gabana says sometimes people get stuck thinking that they have to feel a certain way — especially happy or grateful, or something else — in order to start gratitude practice. But that’s not the case. Spending a little time every evening writing a list of all the good things that happened during the day is enough to get you started. And then, by modeling gratitude for others, you can start to change the culture around you, just by changing yourself.
