This video stirs up a lot of emotions in me.

At Grit Leadership, we talk a lot about how holding high expectations while being kind and relational is what generates transformational, empowering leadership that will inspire your athletes. It is possible to be firm, to expect a lot, and still relate in a positive way.

Motivation and discipline do not have to be cold. It is not easy to accomplish, but providing intense and positive motivation is what kids thrive on. Deep down, they want a lot expected of them. If you can hold expectations high, connect to kids and show them you believe in them, they will run through brick walls for you. You might not always win, but everyone will have a lot more fun.

Watch this video and see what moves you about this moment. Well done, coach.
