I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

Yes, I have a problem with credit seeking coaches who constantly want people to give THEM “credit where credit is due,” but don’t accept any of the blame when things go badly.

You want “responsibility” for your athletes, take it ALL, not just the parts that make you look good.

Better yet, do what Proactive Coaching suggests and coach with strength and humility.

Coaching is not about who gets the credit.

Coaching is about serving your athletes the best you can while always striving to do better FOR THEM.

Here is the original Facebook post that sparked my comments on this topic again. You can grab the 7 Ways to Lead your Team booklet at
