Starting a head Coaching career sometimes seems full of insurmountable challenges. Head Coaching is hard.
“Why didn’t anyone tell me it was going to be so lonely?”
College coaches are expected to absorb “all of the things” from their playing career (you had a Coach, right?) and time as a not-head-Coach. Mentoring sometimes happens, sometimes does not…systematic education around how to be a Head Coach does not.
What if you had systems to provide clarity for yourself first and foremost?
What if you showed up each day with a better idea of what’s needed from you that day?
No promises, no one can guarantee a smooth day for any of us, but what if you had a cohort of people who were there for you…not just friends or others struggling to keep their head above water, but people who are committed to sharing their story, their challenges and their tools to help you create breathing room?
No matter where you are right now, it’s Year Zero. You always get to work to make things smoother, clearer and more systematic. I am excited for where you’re going, to a place that’s not lonely, that’s for sharing and for clarity. Keep asking questions!
