[PODCAST] Keith Grabowski, Brian Kight discuss the scale of effort, commitment

By Keith Grabowski | Posted 10/19/2018

This week in the Leadership Journey series, Keith Grabowski and Brian Kight talk about the variation of effort and commitment in a team. They discuss how coaches get the effort desired from their players. Throughout the course of a season, coaches gain an idea of who is giving maximum effort and who is committed as well as those who are not. Keith and Brian discuss what that looks like and ways to respond to it. Also, how to get the effort and commitment from these players without it being overbearing to them.
