Setting the Table for Speed Mentoring

A leader recognizes the things they’ve learned aren’t meant to be kept to themselves but rather need to be shared.  They want others to succeed and understand their influence on helping others grow.  In order for our players to raise their performance, teaching needs to come from not only the coaches but the players too.  When you listen to athletes speak at higher levels, players usually credit their success as much to their other teammates as they do their coaches.  Players have a huge role in each others development which is why it’s so important to get players thinking and in the habit of mentoring their peers.

""I had been friends with some of my teammates for years and it wasn't until this exercise that I learned some things from them that I wish I had learned years before.  It was impactful""
