If you fail to build trust in your team, you are setting yourself up for more failure. When times get tough, each player has to trust that their teammates and coaches have their back. But just saying “We have to have each other’s backs,” isn’t enough.

You build that trust in your team by fostering open, honest communication and developing empathy for one another. That way, when someone disagrees with the way someone else is doing things, that conversation will go a lot more smoothly.

We discuss:

  • How Alicia continues to incorporate the team why and culture into all drills and discussions.
  • Tactics for encouraging all players to speak up both in team discussions and on the field.
  • How she helped her players begin to develop empathy for one another so they understand others’ perspectives.
  • Building trust in the coaching staff with honest, open feedback both in games and at practice.

Want more activities and trainings for building trust in your team?

That’s what we do with the Dream Team Blueprint! You can implement the program yourself with our Toolkit¬†or bring us in to consult and make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to empathy and communication!
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to reach out me at Mel@mentalsweetspot.com, shoot me a message on Twitter, or join our free Facebook group.
That’s all for this week! Hope to see you back here soon!
