On this episode of the Leader Journey edition on the Coach and Coordinator podcast, host Keith Grabowski and co-host Brian Kight look at the importance of self-awareness and entitlement. Having a consistent sense of self-awareness is what enlightens a coach and allows him/her to be more effective. Keith and Brian both observe the culture of coaches and describe how self-awareness can fix some of the issues coaches face. They give different ideas of what kind of self-awareness is necessary and ways to incorporate those in-season and out of season.
