This week’s Coach’s Corner was poached from my son’s hockey coaches. We were at a USA Hockey Pacific District Camp in Vegas this weekend. Coaches evaluated the players for the US national teams. At the dinner, they listed the qualities they’re looking for. It struck me how similar their priorities are to what qualities make you a good employee and a good person in general:

What’s Important?

  • Passion and purpose
  • Mental toughness and discipline
  • Training, nutrition, and recovery
  • Practice habits
  • Being coachable
  • Respect for the game and people
