  • Stop Enabling Gossip Girls – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    it It s pernicious because it s based on a self fulfilling prophecy If I lack trust or efficacy I engage in gossip which robs me of the opportunity to test my mistrust or inefficacy The more I use it the more I reinforce my need for it They address the underlying problem in three ways 1 Stop enabling The best way to stop gossip is to stop enabling it Gossipers are rewarded when others respond passively by simply listening To stop it force it into the open At the tech company employees know that gossip comes with a risk the risk that you will be called out Recently some employees noticed a number of others had begun to use a third party app Secret which allows people to share message anonymously to complain about colleagues and policies When they recognized their colleagues complaints longer tenured employees began calling out those who were whining rather than confronting responsibly They even posted their names and contact information in the app to offer support for those who wanted to learn how to truly solve their problems 2 Build trust in the alternatives Leaders at the company also reduce the supply of gossip by decreasing demand They proliferate options for raising problems The all hands meeting is just one example The company also uses an internal social network platform to model candor and openness on a host of topics that would be terrifying at other places For example some employees grumbled when execs announced a recent multi billion dollar acquisition Monday morning quarterbacking is common at all companies but at this company it was done with attributed comments in a discussion group and Ken participated One employee kicked it off with What s up We already have a business unit that does the

    long period of time Success is not a matter of mastering subtle sophisticated theory but rather embracing common sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence Said in yet another way discipline is to an athlete what scales are to a musician Mastering the scales is what allows the musician to perform music Mastering the skills of self discipline is what enables a person to become an accomplished elite athlete Mike Hebert 5 The only discipline that lasts is self discipline John Kessel 6 Coaching is about finding a system that works for your players There are some underlying principles which are applied in any coaching situation but it s about picking the lock to get this group of players to play the best volleyball they re capable of playing for a long period of time Hugh McCutcheon 7 We are all going to fall short We are going to have some bitter losses very painful defeats and failures We have to use those to come back even stronger That s what makes it sweeter when we can overcome those and figure out a way to win The great teams can do that and those are the gold medal winning teams Karch Kiraly 8 I ve heard people say that maybe we d be better served had we lost I was kind of wondering what profession they were in I wouldn t want a lawyer representing me to think like that I wouldn t want a doctor operating on me to think like that Russ Rose 9 It is critical the coach exhibit the following traits a The coach must be prepared at all times b The coach must demonstrate to the team that he is extremely organized c The coach must demonstrate confidence d The coach must demonstrate technical and tactical competence e The coach must demonstrate maturity f The coach must be a behavioral role model for the players g The coach must define leadership as seeking the answers when an unexpected situation or a conflict presents itself that must be resolved h The coach must demonstrate flexibility and must demonstrate the ability to deal with players on a multitude of levels i The coach must never forget that his own will to win his own leadership his own competitiveness his own persona will be transmitted through the team and that the team s success or failure will be his success or failure Doug Beal 10 How a coach says no is more significant than how a coach says yes Marv Dunphy 11 We had two goals One was to cherish every moment together cherish the journey because the journey allows you to learn and grow The other was to win a gold medal Kerri Walsh 12 All my life I ve dreamed in gold Misty May 13 Training is specific The maximum benefits of a training stimulus can only be obtained when it replicates the movements and energy systems involved in the activities of a sport This

  • Karch Kiraly’s Top 10 Things Learned From Playing in the Olympics – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    be best friends There were times when members of our 1984 Olympic Games gold medal team could be livid with each other but we were always united in our effort to medal Don t dwell on petty differences or disagreements Focus on the common goal 3 Make your opponents beat you Keep the ball in play Too many errors will kill you whether it s at the Olympics or in a junior club match A key for me in all three of our gold medals was just good making good play after good play forcing teams to play great to beat us If they do hats off to them But there s nothing worse than the feeling of knowing you could have won if it weren t for the errors and free points you gave away 4 Let sleeping dogs alone Don t provoke your opponents with smack talk The Cuban Men s team was a very strong and very dangerous team However they were notorious for yelling and screaming under the net which only made us want to beat them that much more 5 There s nothing prettier than a beautiful passing platform guiding the ball to a perfect pass One of the keys to our Olympic indoor success in the 1980s was our ability to consistently deliver perfect passes to the setter In 1984 Aldis Berzins and I were the two primary passers and in 1988 Bob Ctvrtlik and I handled the passing Because we won the serve receive battle we would win the side out battle and that pressure caused most of our opponents to fold 6 Serve in on match point Eric Sato was one of our utility players in Seoul and he won several matches for us by serving a good but not overpowering jump spin serve including the Olympic Games gold medal point versus the Soviet Union 7 If you re not getting better you re getting worse This is a quote from Marv Dunphy the longtime coach of the Pepperdine men s team and our Olympic indoor coach for the 1988 gold medal When you think about it this makes perfect sense If you re satisfied staying at the same level you re getting worse because players who are working hard to improve their games are getting better So relative to those around you you re losing ground if you re not getting better No matter how good you are don t be satisfied The better you get the harder it is to improve but greatness comes when you challenge yourself 8 Practice like it s competition and compete like it s another day on the practice court I m not sure who said this but I tried to live it throughout my volleyball career If you take the court knowing you have competed full throttle at every practice it gives you the confidence to perform when it counts most That might be the Olympics Or it might be your biggest high school

  • Givers vs Takers – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    never knew them nor got any comments but have time and time again been told I m followed The only following I really know of are a few numbers on Google analytics that tells me I had 25 000 visitors this month I have no idea who these visitors are I can see they are from around the world but I am appreciative they find what I write somewhat interesting Or maybe they are on my blog for the resources Honestly I m indifferent to why they visit I m glad to provide a resource and a way to help grow our game That s always been my objective Recently an active participant of the AVCA and a board member of the First Time Attendees Committee Brian Swenty who I randomly met at a round table lunch at an AVCA Convention in Kansas City approached me to join him to start up a Volleyball Coaches facebook user group I was just about in the process of moving to my new gig at Miami and really wasn t ready to embark on another online journey But I couldn t avoid Brian s persistence and partnered along On this facebook group we quickly attracted 250 users in the first week of the group and it is over 400 users now I m impressed and surprised with its quick growth but I also find it fascinating that only a small group of members actually participate in the group By participate I mean GIVE information or comment on posts and are active I am willing to guestimate that only 15 people are contributing members givers to the group The remaining members are takers Those that are group members in order to learn find information or feel they need to be a part of the group to not miss something important I am a taker of many groups I enjoy taking information from the Harvard Business Review group Mashable The Talent Code etc I do not plan on being an active member of those groups will rarely if ever leave a comment but I do enjoy the ideas I develop through these groups Sometimes I will share information from these groups that really spark my interest and feel my online friends will find the same Being a taker is easy and something I do for me but being a giver is far more rewarding We can t be givers in everything we do but we shouldn t be takers with everything we do There needs to be an aspect of our lives that we embrace and give We can t give all the time either but there needs to be a discipline regiment that we can provide information experience and expertise to help others grow In turn we grow With the abundance of information and convenience of access to it this generation our players continually and unconsciously take information We have not provided them the tools to be givers So much is already taken care

  • Three Mistakes We Make Leading Kids – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    on her project and immediately called her mother right in the middle of her class After interrupting the class discussion with her complaint about her poor grade she handed the cell phone to her professor and said She wants to talk to you Evidently mom wanted to negotiate the grade A Harvard Admissions Counselor reported a prospective student looked him in the eye and answered every question he was asked The counselor felt the boy s mother must have coached him on eye contact because he tended to look down after each response Later the counselor learned the boy s mom was texting him the answers every time a question came in A college president said a mother of one of his students called him saying she d seen that the weather would be cold that day and wondered if he would make sure her son was wearing his sweater as he went to class She wasn t joking This may sound harsh but rescuing and over indulging our children is one of the most insidious forms of child abuse It s parenting for the short term and it sorely misses the point of leadership to equip our young people to do it without help Just like muscles atrophy inside of a cast due to disuse their social emotional spiritual and intellectual muscles can shrink because they re not exercised For example I remember when and where I learned the art of conflict resolution I was eleven years old and everyday about fifteen boys would gather after school to play baseball We would choose sides and umpire our games Through that consistent exercise I learned to resolve conflict I had to Today if the kids are outside at all there are likely four mothers present doing the conflict resolution for them The fact is as students experience adults doing so much for them they like it at first Who wouldn t They learn to play parents against each other they learn to negotiate with faculty for more time lenient rules extra credit and easier grades This actually confirms that these kids are not stupid They learn to play the game Sooner or later they know someone will rescue me If I fail or act out an adult will smooth things over and remove any consequences for my misconduct Once again this isn t even remotely close to how the world works It actually disables our kids 3 We Rave Too Easily The self esteem movement has been around since Baby Boomers were kids but it took root in our school systems in the 1980s We determined every kid would feel special regardless of what they did which meant they began hearing remarks like You re awesome You re smart You re gifted You re super Attend a little league awards ceremony and you soon learn everyone s a winner Everyone gets a trophy They all get ribbons We meant well but research is now indicating this method has unintended consequences

  • Top 10 Principles for Mental Training from the US Olympic Committee – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    mental state before they compete 5 THOUGHTS IMPACT BEHAVIOR CONSISTENCY OF THINKING CONSISTENCY OF BEHAVIOR It is a simple but powerful idea that all sport behavior starts with a thought While much of coaching focuses on making sport behavior more consistent and controllable much less of coaching focuses on making thinking more consistent and controllable Because of this many coaches are surprised by not only the difference between their athletes practice behavior and competition behavior but that the reason for that difference is due to how their athletes are thinking One goal of sport psychology is to understand and control the thinking process therefore understanding and controlling behavior 6 COACHES OFTEN HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF CHANGING TECHNICAL MISTAKES VS MENTAL MISTAKES As sport psychologists we are optimistic about the ability to work on mental mistakes Thus we are often surprised when coaches are willing to write off an athlete as a choker when they repeat mental mistakes in competition These are often the same coaches who will work literally for years with an athlete on a repeated technical mistake To a coach who says I don t think they ll ever do it we ask How many times have you specifically worked on changing the mental mistakes What drills have you tried How do you give the athlete feedback on his mental mistake Does the athlete know exactly how she should think Have you had this discussion 7 COACHES MUST BE INVOLVED IN THE MENTAL TRAINING PROCESS Historically in sport psychology we have heard coaches say after a strong period of training before the season Well now it is all mental Now it is up to the sport psychologist While it is nice to feel important to a team s success we have learned from hard experience that it is all wrong for coaches to outsource mental training and sport psychology to a sport psychology consultant We have learned that many elite coaches feel out of their comfort zone when dealing with in mental training issues and fear asking probing questions about how an athlete thinks and feels We have also learned to push coaches to go past their fears and get used to coaching the mental as well as the physical athlete If coaches don t become the prime provider of sport psychology for their teams all kinds of teaching opportunities and chances for excellence will be missed At worst coaches who are unaware of their athletes mental skill building will coach in ways that oppose or undermine the mental skills acquired The bottom line is that coaches must be involved in mental training for it to be successful 8 SOMETIMES IT IS OK TO FORCE ATHLETES TO TAKE THE TIME TO DO MENTAL TRAINING The USOC s Sport Psychology Department s philosophy on this topic has evolved over the past ten years In the past we were unwilling to say that all teams should do some form of mental training We had been fairly passive waiting for
