Read: A Complex Transaction (pages 68-88)
Themes: Basic Developmental Needs of Youth | Triggers vs. Logs | Destructive/Transactional vs. Virtuous/Transformational Coaching
Game Plan: Overwhelmed by the response elicited from the Parade Magazine article, Joe and Paula began recognizing dysfunctional coaching patterns in the thousands of stories they begin to hear. In this chapter, we will take a look at the destructive realities of transactional coaching as well as the exciting and virtuous possibilities of transformational coaching. We will review the needs of our youth identified in the “Hardwired to Connect” study and look to the power of coach to coach according to the needs of the player, rather than those of the coach.
