David tells us his 10 main lessons for young coaches and leaders on this weeks episode. All this advice has come from David's personal experience in his career as a young coach.

The 10 most important coaching and leadership lessons I have learned as a young coach. For every single one of these, I have learned "the hard way":

1. You must create separation between yourself and your players. If you do not create boundaries they will view you as a friend and you won't be able to command the respect necessary to lead.

2. While every player must be treated fairly, each player needs something completely different. Its the job of a coach to figure out how to get the most out of each player.

3. You cannot implement new rules/standards mid-season. Do everything you can to set the guidelines upfront. Be extremely detailed and do not hesitate to enforce.

4. Never underestimate the power of sending a kid home or kicking him off the team. I know its harsh, but sometimes it sends a necessary message.

5. When making gametime decisions, go with your gut. Theres a reason you're coaching/leading at a high level. Go with your gut and trust you made the best decision with the info you had. You'll never have regrets...

6. People will perceive you by the way your team behaves in the dugout and off the field. DO NOT lose control of the team and ensure they carry themselves with class.

7. Almost every player will go pro in something other than sports. If you fail to teach life lessons/skills which can be applied to other areas of life, you are failing as a coach.

8. Character is SOOO much more important than talent. Its FAR more enjoyable and fulfilling when coaching kids of high character who appreciate the work you put in. Recruit and look for hard working, high character kids and stay away from the talent trap.

9. Delegate everything you can possibly delegate & try to surround yourself with coaches smarter than you.

10. Be relentlessly positive! Its super challenging, but as a leader you must be an absolute rock. Bring positive energy everyday and your kids will love you.

Lack of forgiveness is very painful when you take a swing and miss. We all make mistakes. Nobody is perfect. By offering forgiveness to someone you release all the anger, hate and pain that prevents the positive energy from flowing through you. Holding a grudge makes you butter. Offering forgiveness simply sets you free! When you do happen to make that mistake, “or error”, being accountable, taking full ownership and asking forgiveness is sometimes all you can do! The tough part is, what do you do when you take a whack at forgiveness and it is not granted?

Coaching over 30,000 private lessons, Troy Silva has learned his “calling” in life is to be a coach. However, after a just few years of transitioning from pro ball player to coach at Rijo Baseball, Troy learned that being a quality coach involves much more than simply teaching a kid a nice swing. A good coach serves as a positive influence in the child’s life. Troy discusses how the best coaches are those who mentor children and lead by example. Positive coaches motivate and challenge the kids to be their best BOTH on and off the field. After all, if you are a coach, parent or teacher you’re going to be a role model... the question is are you going to be a good one or abad one?
