Ben Rosen, Ph.D and Brad Kirkman, Ph.D conducted 15 one-on-one interviews with U.S. coaches of men’s and women’s sports teams, then surveyed 1,987 coaches of team sports. They found 5 recurring themes to building winning teams that are able to overcome unexpected obstacles:
1. Recruit resilient players*
2. Build a team culture
3. Focus on individual and team accountability
4. Develop coping skills
5. Manage the external environment

*Once again, success begins with the “right” team members. How are you recruiting resilient players? The Drake assessment is a critical success tool to identify strong prospects and develop current team members. Contact me for additional information on the Drake Assessment. 610-873-8404
