Athletes have an extensive support team that works with them, for them, and because of them. That support may be in the form of mentoring, parenting, teaching, investing, managing or coaching - and it all matters.
But, the athlete is the only one competing.
Consider this as you manage your team today. Your job is to provide direction, coaching and encouragement but not to do the task. Get off the field, outta the pool, and let them win.
