Leadership Skills begin with these

The best coaches try to build strong leaders on the team, too. They knowthat leadership comes not only from the coaches but from other players, too. Players may ignore the coach at times, but they will think long and hard before challenging a peer.

When coaches display leadership skills, players see first-hand how leaders behave. Coaches with self-control, consistency, enthusiasm, and pride give athletes an excellent picture of guiding others. Some players have natural leadership abilities, and coaches can enhance those and more. Coaches should read about the leadership strategies of some of the best coaches around and of all time, too.

A useful method for teaching leadership is putting players in a leadership role. The "Captain of the Day" can do just that. Coaches can choose a different player each day and have that player make some decisions for the team. Captain for a Day helps players develop assurance, self-esteem, and responsibility.
