Coaches Facebook Live Q&A With Lindsey Wilson

With a Coaches Facebook group of over 1300 coaches (and growing every day), we wanted to get to know our coaches better and give back to our community by hosting our first ever Coaches Facebook Live Q&A. Coaches were encouraged to submit questions ahead of time using the hashtag #QAwithLindsey, and they were also encouraged to attend the Q&A live to ask any additional questions and join the live conversation. We had a number of coaches attend live to ask questions and provide links to resources for coaches, and others who tuned in after the broadcast concluded.

Others aren’t necessarily scared of the camera but they self-sabotage in other ways; by getting into a perfectionism mindset, for example. They want everything about the video to be JUST RIGHT. Maybe they are waiting for the stars to align or for divine inspiration to strike.
 
Either way, they are stalling. Some of them have posted their videos, many have excuses why they haven’t. As you might imagine, most of the excuses aren’t absolute barriers but are rather rooted in fear or in perfectionism. Keep in...

The thing is, you know and I know, that your athletes are going to STRUGGLE at some point- one mistake is going to turn into 2, 3, more? You will likely lose, an athlete will be in a slump. Someone will get injured and another will just have an 'off' day.
