Bruce Bochy On the Power of Positive Coaching

By David Jacobson, Positive Coaching Alliance

It's one thing to trust research showing that Positive Coaching helps athletes perform better. It's another to hear about it from Bruce Bochy, Manager of the World Champion San Francisco Giants.

In this video excerpt from PCA's National Youth Sports Awards Dinner, where Bochy accepted PCA's Ronald L. Jensen Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Giants skipper explains how his own positive coaching and willingness to help players past their mistakes generated the resilience that fueled the Giants' World Series victory.

Stay tuned to the end for a special message about how Bochy's techniques translate to coaching Little Leaguers!
