Course description

True Athletic Coaching Communication Skills

Participants will learn how to build relationships and set strategic goals that impact the self esteem of individual student athletes and overall teams. We will also cover how coaches foster communication with parents and teachers to help support student athlete performance and enhance life-long learning.

The True Colors Approach
True Colors helps people understand why they behave and react the way that they do.
We help our clients increase their self-awareness, improve their communication skills, and elevate their empathy for others — leading to more meaningful relationships, less miscommunication, and decreased conflict.

How is True Colors Different
The True Colors methodology takes the most important concepts presented in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and distills them into a user-friendly, fun, engaging, and — most important — practical tool. We use colors — Orange, Gold, Green, and Blue — to differentiate the four central primary personality types and teach how these types best interact with each other.

In the True Colors Athletic Coaching Workshop, we’ll introduce coaches to our concepts in personality and behavioral styles. Then, we’ll focus on practical and useful activities that apply to coaching, such as ways to lead by:

-Demonstrating a positive mindset
-Building up the strengths — and improving the weaknesses — of each player
-Utilizing better goal setting and training strategies for your athletes

How is a True Colors Athletic Coach Different?
Communicates Effectively. The conflict between coaches and athletes generally revolves around communication issues, which too often leads to parents getting involved. A True Colors Coach knows how to effectively communicate with their athletes, reducing parent conflict as a result.

Motivates Each Athlete in a Way They Will Naturally Respond to. Not every athlete is motivated by the same comments or actions. A True Colors Coach will recognize the unique personality or “color” of each athlete and therefore be able to better motivate and empower each person on the team.

Sets Goals and Training Strategies that Best Compliment an Athlete's Personality. Communicates Effectively. Athletes need to not only improve their strengths but also their weaknesses. A True Colors Coach sets goals and training strategies for each of their athlete's “colors,” thereby getting better, more swift results from their efforts.

We will customize an approach grounded in True Colors methodology that best fits your team and athletic organization.
