HOW WE HELP: THE SIX THEMES

To further develop the modern coach-athlete relationship, we have simplified a decade of research into six behavioral coaching themes that our research demonstrates are instrumental to enhancing the student-athlete experience.

We focus on these six themes based on rigorous research from more than 230,000 interactions between coaches and student-athletes. These themes are what help us measure programs, so we create a path to improving the student-athlete experience.

1

PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY

Constructing an environment that allows student-athletes to be their own true self without fear of negative consequences.

2

CONNECTION

Building relationships of trust with student-athletes.

3

STRUCTURE

Establishing an organized, consistent, and predictable team environment.

4

SKILL DEVELOPMENT

Advancing competence and technique so student-athletes perform to the best of their ability.

5

CHALLENGE

Creating unique growth opportunities for each student-athlete that moves them out of their comfort zone.

6

COMMUNICATION

A coach’s capacity to effectively share information, strategies, and expectations with their student-athletes.

THE BEST TEDX
TALK FOR COACHES

If you’re a coach, and the No. 1 goal for your student-athletes is to win, your program needs a second look. How do we know?  Data tells us that unless you’ve created a trust-based connections and provided a psychologically safe team environment that challenges each student-athlete to grow – physically and mentally – peak performance will escape your team.

Says who? Says the guy whose last TEDx Talk has millions of views. And if you’re someone who needs more proof than that, watch Ecsell Sports’ founder Bill Eckstrom’s latest TEDx Talk where he explains the difference between a transactional coach and a transformational coach. He shares why a program without psychological safety and strong coach-athlete connections leads to dysfunction and student-athletes who don’t have the support to grow.
