After watching video 1, you probably have a good idea about where you want to take your culture.
The next step is to hold your self, your staff, and your players accountable for the things you value most. It may seem like a buzz word, but whether or not “Accountability” is one of your values, it’s one of the biggest factors in determining your team’s potential.
Here are a few ways to ensure your team values come to life in your practices:
1. Remind, remind, remind. Talk to your players every day about the culture you’re creating together and why it’s important.
2. Leadership. Identify key players and staff members, including yourself, that will be responsible for living out your team values and positively influencing others to do the same. Your team won’t ‘go the way’ if no one is ‘showing the way.’
3. Have tough conversations. When you come up against habits and behaviors that run contrary to your team values, face them head on. You may need time to reflect on the best response, but make sure you respond.
Once you’ve established where you want to go, now you need a plan and a process. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s video where TJ shares an example from his practices.
