The mindset that you bring to your sport can play a major role in how much fun you have and how successful you are.
Do you believe that you and other athletes are born with a certain amount of ability? That you either have it or you don’t? Do you feel an urgency to prove yourself over and over again, so that everyone knows you’re as good as they think you are?
Or, do you believe that you can develop your athletic abilities over time, through hard work and determination? Do you feel that everyone can change and grow through hard work and experience, regardless of their natural athleticism or skill?
The magic of culture. Be intentional. Be about each other.
Championship Culture = Be Intentional + Be About Relationships
It's not about slogans hanging on walls. It's about the conversations and interactions you have with each other. This is the only way you can go into challenging situations and trust that the connections you have with each other are strong enough to carry the team through to the other side where success is earned.
Confidence is one of those tricky things that can make or break you as an athlete. When you’re competing with confidence, you play knowing that things are going to go your way. You believe that you will win and nothing stands between you and all your goals.
On the other hand, when you lack confidence, you rarely perform at your best. Fear can make you lose your edge in a critical moment, making your game less fun. Playing with confidence can make all the difference between a good season and a great one.
Communication is critical building a Championship Culture and for team performance. A meeting on this topic should cover the different types, the “what-how-when” you say it, and good examples of the impact it can have.
Body language is an important form of communication. In fact, psychologists tell us that a large part of communication does not involve any words. Nonverbal behavior is the most crucial part of how we communicate with others.
Athletes communicate non-verbally all the time, and it plays an important role in how others perceive them. Just as coaches don’t allow negative talk within the team, they also pay very close attention to body language.
Negative body language can harm a team’s culture in the same way that poor verbal communication can. In this lesson, we’ll discuss body language and how it impacts a team’s culture and performance.
The 3E Team Captain Cards are designed to teach you what it means to be a captain. This deck provides every captain with the information and tips you need to succeed, regardless of the sport. Towel and water bottle not required.
Athletes begin the journey building 3E skills by completing our proprietary ME Assessment to gain a better understanding of how they are wired and what their tendencies may be in both normal and pressure situations. They then progress through the content and advance from Foundation to Advanced and finally to the Mentor level. Regardless of the level, our 15 standards learning themes are basis and reinforced through lessons and stories that the athlete can relate to.
