How to make a team out of individuals

There is a myriad of personalities that accompany athletics. From novice participants to seasoned veterans, athletes will take the critic of their abilities in a variety of ways.

As a coach it is your challenge to create a successful culture out of this mosaic of personalities. Although a chain is as strong as the weakest link a coach must maximize the performance of each individual as well as create a positive environment to foster development. To understand how the links in your chain work you must first understand how the mind works.
