Lessons from Inside Out Coaching


If you coach athletes, you absolutely have to read Inside Out Coaching. We just spent over $300 on twenty copies for our entire staff and I’ll tell you it will be worth it. The insight we gain as a staff will pay that money back many times over.  Author Joe Ehrmann is an ex-NFL player who teaches and preaches what he calls Transformational Coaching. The book is filled with great lines like “sports don’t build character unless a coach possesses character and intentionally teaches it“. That was on page 13. Over the next week we’ll explore more gems from Inside Out Coaching.

    reading. Halfway through. I hope it never ends. I think I like it better than Sacred Hoops–and that’s saying a heck of a lot!!!!!

    Glad you like it. Keep reading.

  3. I and my pals were actually going through the excellent points located on your web page and then
    before long developed a horrible feeling I never expressed respect to you for
    those secrets. The men are already absolutely stimulated to see them and
    have now definitely been making the most of those things.
    Thanks for really being really helpful as well
    as for going for some ideal subjects millions of individuals are really needing to
    learn about. My personal honest apologies for not saying thanks to you earlier.

  4. Thanks Mike for the heads up on what looks to be a great book on a much needed subject in the youth sport world. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it.

    I think great might understate it. I think it should be required reading for every coach at every level.

  6. It is a great book. And like Adam said, this should be required reading for anyone that is going to be a coach. I know I’ll try and apply some of the lessons in the book when I’m coaching my son’s Squirt B House Hockey team this season.

    He spoke to our faculty and kids last year, book is outstanding. Currently helping to coach sons youth football team, wish this book was required reading for all the coaches…the are the typical transactional coach…pretty sad at the end of the day

  8. Mike,
    I heard Ehrmann speak 6-7 years ago and have read several of his books. Inside Out is a definite must read for coaches as they must come to the realization that it’s not about them but about the kids/athletes.
