At the end of each season all
players should take some time to review their performance and quality of experience
playing the game. This process transcends the win loss record of the team and
looks at individual development and overall quality of the experience. There
are no so called “life lessons” on the score board and only through intentional
review and discussions in the proper context can the real benefits of playing
athletics be realized.
All top-level organizations have feedback mechanisms to help individuals develop. Without this type of communication and process between player and coach individual player development is likely to be slowed. This is very true in athletics as well as in the business world.
