As a coach, I believe that coaching is “unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them” which was stated by John Whitman. I agree with this quote because as a coach I want to do what is best for each player individually. Therefore, I stress the importance of accountability, punctuality, discipline, but most importantly great sportsmanship. Every action or reaction of each person affects the entire team.

Respect directly correlates from the game of baseball to the workforce.
