“Know yourself and you will win all battles”
– Sun Tzu
An effective playoff coach is one who operates with mindfulness and self-awareness. These are foundational attributes every coach needs in their tool case. Success in the playoffs is when preparation meets opportunity. A coach who is prepared, by understanding who they need to be for their team, not just what they need to do, will increase their ability to inspire success.
With the end of the regular season, a coach may experience many emotions. If their team excelled and came in the first place, the coach may feel pride, joy, and a sense of accomplishment.
However, if their team peaked too early and dropped a few places in the standings, frustration, anger, and disappointment may set it. No coach is ever happy with just coasting into the playoffs.
