Teaming Up with Parents
“When Americans want to do something well we do it in teams, whether it’s building a rocket, counter- terrorism, or developing a new product. Yet, when it comes to arguably the most important thing we do–raising moral children–American parents tend to be isolated and dangerously insulated from feedback of any kind.”
-Richard Weissbourd, The Parents We Mean to Be
I am writing a new book that focuses on how coaches can effectively partner and collaborate with parents, instead of viewing them as an obstacle. Over the past six years in my work, I have witnessed incredible work by coaches who have worked in tandem with parents to accomplish team goals and support each athlete individually.
In my upcoming book, I will share some of these inspiring success stories and offer practical advice on how coaches can effectively engage and partner with parents to enhance their athletes' performance, development as a person, and cultivate a supportive team culture. I am excited to share these valuable insights.
Also, I’m currently seeking stories about coaches who have successfully engaged parents and families to create a more positive impact on their athletes and foster a supportive team culture. If you have personally experienced such a situation, I would love to hear from you whether you are a coach, parent, or player.
Your story could be featured in my upcoming book, and if selected, I will contact you for an in-depth interview to learn more about your experience.
Thank you for considering sharing your story with me using the following link.
Food for thought.
