What do you make?


 A great story and lesson from Joe Ehrmann's classic book InsideOut Coaching:

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing sports, education, and life.  A successful businessman decided to explain the problem with education.  He argued, “What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher-coach?”  He reminded the other dinner guests what is often said about teachers: “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.”  To stress his point he said to another guest, “You’re a teacher and coach, Bob.  Be honest.  What do you make?” 

Bob, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness, replied, “You want to know what I make? 
I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could. 
I make them push through self-imposed limitations, athletically and academically. 
I make them strive together and for each other. 

You want to know what I make? 
I make boys into men. 
I make them question. 
I make them self-critique. 
I make them aware of their social responsibility to build a better world. 
I make them competitive and teach them how to win with humility and lose with honor. 
I make them understand that if you follow your heart and someone ever tries to judge you by what you make, you must pay no attention because they just don’t get it.” 

Bob paused and then continued.  “You want to know what I make?  I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  What do you make?”

Do you want to be that kind of difference-making coach?  Start your journey here 3D Coaching
