Updated Version Of Coaching Affirmations Is Released

The Leadership Publishing Team has released an updated version of Coaching Affirmations:A Coach’s Guide to Improving Individual Performance. Originally published in 2010, the book is full of positive affirmations  compiled exclusively for coaches and athletes to help you always be at your best.

An affirmation can create an attitude of “I can do this!” The mind cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined. And all coaches know the relationship of mental to physical performance. As Bob Knight says, “Mental is to physical as four is to one.”

The book is compiled by Dan Spainhour, author of many coaching and leadership books including the well respected A Season In Words and contains easy to use affirmations that can be used by athletes and coaches alike.

The Coaching and Leadership Journal Enters Its Sixth Year And Continues To Grow

The Leadership Publishing Team announced this week that their monthly journal, The Coaching and Leadership Journal  (CLJ) will continue into its 7th year. The Journal was founded in August of 2011 and published its first issue in August 2012. At that time, Dan Spainhour, founder of the Leadership Publishing Team and curator of the journal said, “I am so excited about the Coaching and Leadership Journal. I believe this monthly journal is just what the busy leader needs. There is so much information out there and it can be so time consuming trying to find it. Coaches don’t have time to read blogs, and other material that can provide some really great information. Our journal allows them to get the information they need without having to waste time searching for it. I believe the top people in any profession never stop learning and that is the main objective of this journal--provide coaches and leaders the means to learn without having to waste their valuable time.”

The Journal's subscriber list includes coaches from every college sport as well as numerous athletic administrators on both the collegiate and high school level. Last year the Journal had a renewal rate of over 70 percent.

"I am so very proud of our Journal. It is especially gratifying to watch our journal grow. When we launched in 2012 there was so much speculation that subscription-based print journals were dead. But I knew what my years of experience had taught me. Top leaders want to read and they want to learn--they just don't have the time to waste on irrelevant information. In an era where most magazines feel very fortunate to get a renewal rate of 50 percent, I think our renewal rate of over 70 percent shows that athletic leaders realize the value of our publication," said Spainhour

This last year saw an already impressive subscriber list become even more impressive as University of South Carolina's Frank Martin and Memphis' Tubby Smith became subscribers.
