The 8 Hidden Talents
I had the pleasure of interviewing Travis Daugherty in this week’s podcast, and he shared some great wisdom from his book, The Lens
He shared one of the best lists I have seen defining what characteristics we should focus on developing (in ourselves and in those we coach.)
He calls it The 8 Hidden Talents…
- Loving the game
- Giving your best
- Overcoming adversity
- Seeking improvement
- Getting coached
- Being a teammate
- Taking risks
- Having a positive attitude
What a great list to work off as you develop your team’s core values. And the great thing is they are all controllable, for every player, whether the star athlete or the last guy off the bench.
