Goal setting & Team building: applications of Stephen Covey’s ideas in football

Football is a team sport. This means that success is determined by the optimal combination of physical, tactical and technical skills of each one of the players. To train a team effectively, a coach must adjust personal characteristics to fit the team’s objectives and goal. Also, he needs to develop a strategy to translate goals into action. And then he must effectively communicate the goals to players and staff members.

There might be players that make no commitment to team’s goals? How can you, as a coach, get them involved? Goal setting is not an easy task.

Dr. Stephen Covey, one of 25 most influential American’s and an internationally respected leader has presented very nice work in his books. This is a video which I think apply also to football. Hope it helps you and gives you some ideas for your every day work in the field. 

Enjoy it!
