Bring It In: The Shout-Out Circle

Making a point to call out the little things that often go unnoticed but impact your team's culture and performance.

Bring It In is a coaching-focused column by Keith Raynor.

How do you end your practices? I imagine most teams just have a wrap-up huddle, consisting of a few brief words about the practice and then a mini-meeting to discuss other items like upcoming scheduling or activities. Some teams do sprints or some stationary throwing. There are probably some cheering clubs out there. Heck, maybe your team does all of the above like some real overachievers.

But now I have something I always like to include, especially when working with players in the first few years of their careers: shout-outs.
