Legendary American college football coach, Eddie Robinson once said,

“Coaching is a profession of love. You can’t coach people unless you love them.”

We forget that sometimes.

We identify a weakness or poor outcome and put our coaching hat on to get a different result.

We look at a person and wonder how we can coach them to do better.

But coaching is a profession of love.

A true coach is doing what she does because she wants the best for her people.

A true coach wants his people to shine and thrive.

A true coach identifies and works hard to bring out the greatness in others.

A true coach genuinely cares and the team knows that they are genuinely valued.

A true coach knows her team’s family and the names of their children and fur babies.

The results come after all of the above.

A true coach knows that.
