Championship Communication
VanDerveer, Beth; Butterick, Betsy
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v30 n6 p5-9 2017
This article discusses team development and focuses specifically on championship communication and team-building activities. Team development takes time and the process typically occurs in stages. Regardless of the sport or what the competitive field may look like, communication is an often overlooked, yet vital element in cultivating a championship culture. By identifying the common barriers to effective communication, teams are not only better able to recognize them when they arise, but can skillfully navigate them before they lead to miscommunication or misunderstandings. Communication workshops, inviting other professionals to talk about their communication methods, team community projects, and fun competitive and non-competitive team-building activities can help lead the way to a championship year. Effective communication, including active listening, is a key driver in producing high-performing teams.
