Now is the time to take four steps to give yourself the best possible chance to survive.

Decide on your vision. Do you want to avoid relegation, finish mid-table or something else?

Once you have decided your vision, you need to look at and accept your reality.

You do this by taking these steps

  • Create a safe, non-judgemental environment in which the coaches can openly discuss their ideas their concerns and what they can do differently from this moment forward.
  • Create the same environment for players and coaches, and allow each player, one by one, to express their ideas, concerns and examples of what can be done differently from this moment forward.

When you have your reality, you consider all the options and implement those that will fit best to support the journey towards your vision.

When you decide what options fit best, you implement them and so the journey up the table begins.

Many players, coaches and teams fail, not because they don’t have the quality players, but the players aren’t encouraged or treated like humans.

The thing is, when we are treated with respect and value, we find motivation to do well.

If we are treated poorly, we become defensive and lack the motivation needed to hope the team and help ourselves.

By simply listening to others then making change, great things can happen.

You don’t need a superstar to win, because any player can become a superstar with the right guidance and opportunity.

If you’re in a relegation spot, provide your players with these opportunities.

As a specialist in mindsets, I would invite you to connect and talk about your concerns and ideas as a player or coach and help you form your plan.
