The concept of mindset is a hot topic among educators, administrators, leaders, coaches, and the self development. It's almost certain that a coach with a mindset that is riddled with negative and limited thinking, will not have the year his team is capable of.
Mindset is defined as a habitual or characteristic mental attitude that determines how you will interpret and respond to situations. When involved in a team sport it is essential for each member of the team to have a common set of beliefs and values around the game, teammates, and relationships. A team without a tough mindset will be inconsistent and rarely reach their potential.
This concept is worth talk about with your staff. What is the mindset of the players in your program? A common mindset can foster togetherness and cohesiveness and both are ingredients for winning.
