Coaching Personality
Coaching the game of basketball  (external link) is a wonderful opportunity for a coach to teach his team the values of discipline, the importance of strategy and planning and the effects of cohesive teamwork.

Basketball coaches usually have a background in the sport that helps them with game plans and strategies. But, even with basic basketball knowledge, there are other sport coaching tips that can help the coach lead his team more effectively:

1. Always be honest with the players. Tell them where their area(s) of strengths and weaknesses are and don't try to spare feelings about their playing ability. This helps them genuinely work on certain areas and develop their sports character.

2. Be candid about their skill level(s) and be prepared to help them develop their skills further. Being less-than-honest can only disillusion them and disappoint them when certain games and playing levels become critical.

3. Develop a relationship with the player's parents. This applies from little league all the way through college basketball. Developing a well-rounded athlete is a team effort and those that have influence in his/her life need to be positive and motivational.

The player's parent's attitude and support are a critical aspect of the player's mental approach to the game. Fostering a relationship with the parents helps to ensure that the parents are in sync with coach's goals for the team.

The desired result for any coach is of course for their team to win, but they may also want to instill other values in their players that will be with them even beyond winning. In this sport, coaching tips are developed as the players mature and as the coach gains more experience. Adjusting each coaching personality  (external link)coaching personality to fit the team is an ideal situation at best.
