I’m about to break a cardinal rule of blogging by introducing the conclusion of my article right now. That’s how important this particular element of team culture is.
Sometimes I have a hard time remembering exactly how the teams I’ve coached performed over the years, but I never have trouble remembering the people. We’ve all coached a couple kids here and there who gave us issues (or their parents gave us issues) but it’s those individuals who made such a positive impact that make it all worthwhile. For example, I’ve got three former players competing in Junior A hockey for the upcoming season who all considered quitting the game when they got to midget.
But they stuck with it. They persevered. They got better and raised the game of everyone around them even though they came out of nowhere.
Now one of them is a shoo-in for an NCAA Division 1 scholarship, and I wouldn’t bet against the other two.
People. Without people your culture is nothing.
