Mental Toughness for Coaches

by Juan Pablo Favero
Looking at the qualities that successful, mentally tough athletes possess, it is clear to see that these same qualities are just as important for a coach who is going to lead his or her players to success. The seven qualities elite performers share are:

1. A strong desire to succeed 2. Positivity in the face of challenges and pressure 3. Controlling the controllables mentally 4. A high commitment/balanced attitude approach 5. A high level of belief in self and team 6. A process-orientation 7. Positive communication and body language
