  • Are You a Maker or Taker? – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    following Maker or Taker post in a recent Inc Magazine article better describes my initial thoughts Apparently Maker or Taker originated from politics and I appreciate how this author translated the concept into success and failure Are You a Maker or a Taker These 12 characteristics determine whether you ll be a success or a failure There s been a lot of talk over the past few years about the difference between makers and takers While I don t agree with the standard political definition of the two groups I do think that there s some validity to the basic idea Here s how I see the difference 1 Confidence Makers know they ll succeed and don t care whether others believe in them or not Takers draw upon others for their motivation and constantly worry what others will think 2 Commitment Makers find the resources within themselves to run the race and turn roadblocks into speed bumps Takers look to their institutions and their families to protect them from the risks of failure 3 Sacrifice Makers choose to do things that they d rather avoid if they re necessary to achieve a goal Takers have a multitude of excuses why they sat on their duffs when something needed doing 4 Selectivity Makers constantly assess what they see and experience focusing on what s useful and filtering out what s useless Takers immerse themselves in the mindless distraction of broadcast media 5 Awareness Makers focus upon their own behavior and how it impacts the behavior of others Takers waste endless hours speculating about what other people are doing and why they re doing it 6 Courage Makers have the courage to make changes in the world around them even when everything seems okay Takers crave the security of knowing that

  • Best Friends and the 7 Team Cultures – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    environment members basically must look out for themselves because they don t trust their teammates and coaches As the name suggests Corrosive Cultures eat away at people s attitudes commitment and chemistry much like a caustic acid Ultimately people just seek to endure in this kind of culture or escape it whenever possible 2 COUNTRY CLUB CULTURE The Country Club Culture is one of entitlement appearances and leisure The priority in this culture is to look good and to have a good time rather than to win championships It is a superficial and soft culture where little accountability is expected from its members so people are allowed to coast Playing time and leadership positions are often not based on merit but instead on politics popularity and brown nosing The currency in a Country Club culture of is much more about style than substance Status in a Country Club Culture is accrued primarily by the kind of gear people wear Results are clearly secondary and relationships are superficial at best 3 CONGENIAL CULTURE A Congenial Culture is one where the focus is primarily on getting along and preserving harmonious relationships The group becomes more of a support group and social club rather than a high performance team focused on achieving winning results While most people get along a Congenial Culture s major concern is that it can be too nice and not focused enough on results Members are very kind to each other but they are typically not honest and candid because they worry the truth might cause hurt feelings or strained relationships A Congenial Culture fits well for a fraternity or sorority but not as well for a competitive sports team 4 COMFORTABLE CULTURE A Comfortable Culture is one where results and relationships are of moderate importance The team sets reasonable standards and is interested in doing well but not if it pushes them out of their comfort zone They will train to certain level but once it gets tough or uncomfortable as it does and should when you are trrying to be a championship program they tend to back off complain and not push through the hard work of training Similarly with relationships the team generally gets along but there are few deep enduring relationships And there is not a collective sense of mission between the teammates Comfortable Cultures usually produce mediocre results and teammates and coaches who end up being acquaintances rather than life long close friends and mentors when it is all said and done 5 COMPETITIVE CULTURE In Competitive Cultures there is a strong focus on results and minimal focus on relationships The competitiveness is both external with opponents and internal with teammates Team members spend a lot of time competing with each other for limited playing time coaches attention and leadership roles While competition is necessary and can spur on great achievement if taken overboard the competitiveness can also inhibit or destroy relationships within the team itself You do want a highly competitive team but
