Coaches, how do you know if you’re doin it right ?
Back in New Orleans at AMSSM I finally got to meet Phil Skiba and talk a little shop.
One of the questions that’s been left open a bit is how can a coach go about self assessing themselves.
As Phil pointed out, in the coaching world a lot of success (race wins) comes from self selection of the talent pool of your roster. Basically, if you win, you attract winning athletes who go out and win more.
The difficultly then becomes how to figure out whether they are winning because of you, or in the opposite extreme, inspite of you.
So coaches, how do you assess yourself ?
