  • Why do you think it’s important for a team to have vocal leaders?
  • Why do you think some athletes make the jump from Leader by Example to Vocal Leader?

  • What scares you about being (becoming) a vocal leader?
why are vocal leaders important
Why Are Vocal Leaders Important?
  • Because so many situations, challenges, conflicts, and problems occur throughout the season that require someone to step up, speak out, and deal with them with assertiveness and tact.
  • If a person chooses only to lead by example and not get involved verbally, they aren’t able to adequately address many of the issues that effective team leadership requires.

Why do some athletes make the jump from Leader by Example to Vocal Leader?

  • Some people are naturally wired by personality (extroverts) to lead vocally.
  • Some become Vocal Leaders when they become more established on a team(seniors, 2 and 3 year starters). It’s a confidence thing.
  • Shy and reserved athletes who are Leaders by Example become Vocal Leaders because of their competitiveness and commitment.
communication skills are critical
Communication Skills Are Critical
  • Listen Up…Build relationships of trust with your teammates. Understand what motivates them and frustrates them.
  • You are communicating to build confidence, keep the team focused, confront problems, stay in touch with coaches, and show your teammates that you care about them and the team.

“Team sports are usually difficult things. Sometimes your team wins because of you, sometimes in spite of you, and sometimes it’s like you are not even there. That’s the reality of the team game. Then at one point in my career, something wonderful happened. I don’t know why or how, but I came to understand what a ‘team’ meant. It meant that although I didn’t get a hit or make a great defensive play, I could impact the team in an incredible and consistent way. I could impact my team by caring first and foremost about the team’s success and not my own. I don’t mean rooting for us like a typical fan, fans are fickle. I mean care, really care about them…about ‘us.’ I became less selfish, less lazy, less sensitive to negative comments. When I gave up ME I became more. I became a captain, a leader, a better person and I came to understand that life is a team game…And you know what?...I’ve found most people aren’t team players. They don’t realize that life is the only game in town. Someone should tell them. It has made all the difference in the world to me.”

“If you think you are too good to block for a running back or dive for a first down, the other guys are going to be like, ‘to heck with him.’ Whether I’m in the locker room or on the field, I try to show that we’re all on the same level, that nobody’s more special than anybody else, and I like to think guys feed off that.”

“Being a leader, you have to be able to find some things in common with all the guys. Sometimes, maybe on the surface, you’ll look at another guy and think you don’t really have anything in common with him, so that’s when you have to make the extra effort to get to know that guy. Find out what makes him tick. And that’s when you find that you do have something in common with him.”
