Coaching is about knowing your players on a personal, deep level. Knowing what drives them and then dialing those knows. Every player is different, with different emotional, fiscal, physical needs. Finding the chemistry among 52 guys is a huge task and you don't do it with multimillionaire by being an *****.I think you’re just witnessing a change in how the next generation of coaches interacts with a new generation of players. I think the way they greet one and other is changing, but that needn’t reflect how a coach challenges, or holds accountable, players.
I coach super low level basketball, both boys and girls varsity, and have taken a few teams to state and working on my third. Its all about relationships. And they last.
It's the same with employees...know what your team needs, thrives on, as a team and as individuals. Leadership isn't the stick or the carrot..it's knowing when to use either on whom and why.
