Seeing With New Eyes
By Cal Barr and Wes Simmons
We recently heard from a high school Cross Country coach who has embraced 3Dimensional Coaching. He has completed the online course and now focuses on coaching all three dimensions: body, mind, and spirit. He also now has clearly developed strategies to capture the hearts of his athletes.
I see my student-athletes with new eyes. I now see them more as whole people. The 3D Coaching framework has helped me be more effective in developing character and creating a better environment for learning and performance. I am teaching in a more caring, loving way.
A big part of his focus is now on helping his athletes to cultivate a Growth Mindset. This helps them value effort, embrace challenges, and see mistakes as opportunities to grow. The result of this has been an environment of hope and faith that is filled with the emotions of love, joy, and peace.
The response has been positive. Athletes enjoy this approach and seem to flourish. Parents take notice as well. One parent talked about the positive growth in his son.
I have seen changes in my son. I am very grateful.
Notice the progression: Before the parent saw the changes in his son, the coach began to see the athletes more holistically. That’s the power of the 3D Coaching framework. The 3D Coaching framework helps coaches see their athletes with new eyes in a new way.
