what they're saying

CONVERSE INC.

In the back of my mind, I was a little worried that only the people that loved sports and especially football would get something out of Alex's stories; however that was not the case. I have received so many emails from people on my team that do not even like football saying how much they learned from the session and how much they enjoyed Alex. Everyone agreed that Alex was the highlight of  our two day retreat. I would love for his full-day workshop to be the first of many that Alex comes out and does for my team. I'd love for us to continue to build on the rapport we have established with Alex and further enable my team to grow.

Lessons from the playing field

feedback sandwich, employee feedback, executive leadership

A competitive sports league is one arena where leaders are known for their tough-talk. After all, a coach’s job is on the line if the team doesn’t perform. Alex Molden, a former NFL player, says, “In the NFL, feedback was a huge component of player development. We had meetings and watched films before and after practice every day, and, as you can probably guess, feedback was flowing freely.”

Molden learned from his coaches and has some recommendations for managers:

  • The best coaches and managers will deliver a “feedback sandwich,” which means acknowledging their efforts, identifying an area that needs improvement, and then following up with a positive point again.
  • Feedback should be delivered behind closed doors where employees feel safe. When criticism is delivered publicly, a bruised ego can keep employees from processing your comments.
  • Deliver employee feedback swiftly and choose your words carefully. Try to avoid expressing anger or disappointment and remain objective. Most people hate feeling like they’re letting someone down, and both the manager and employee can feel uncomfortable by the situation.

Are youth sports worth the drain?

why people burnout of their jobs, sport burnout, AAU programs

According to Alex Molden, a former NFL defensive back who now coaches high school football and is a father of eight, kids need to understand that sports are not who they are, it’s just what they do.

“Find out their likes and what drives them,” he says. Then encourage them to develop a robust “movement library,” as Molden calls it—something that doesn’t require deep pockets.

Opportunities like recreational soccer, football, basketball, golf, and lacrosse are typically more affordable options for year-round skills development than some of the more intensive, sports-specific travel programs. They also prevent the burnout many kids suffer when focusing too much on one sport—something that doesn’t make a huge difference in the early years, says Molden.
