Volleyball a lesson in leadership

October 13, 2009

I was at my younger daughter’s volleyball game this afternoon and noticed how quickly each team tried to get the ball over the net compared to my older daughter’s team. I am struck by the similarities of new leaders versus experienced leaders. The more experienced leader tends to see keeping the ball on their side as a strategic advantage. Setting the play up, slowing it down long enough to go for the spike or killer shot. Are you exhaling when the ball is on your side of the net? Or are you rushing to get it off your side?
