Another gem from the Johnny Parker interview on Samson Equipment’s recent podcast: “Say what you mean and mean what you say.” How many times have you said to an athlete (or your own kid, for that matter), “If you do ______, then _____ will happen!” And you find yourself repeating that same line even after giving them more and more chances to fix their behavior you are looking for. Well, those threats then become empty threats and they catch on that you don’t really mean what you say so they keep doing what they are doing. Follow through on what you say you are going to do and you will get the reaction you are looking for – and respect along the way!
