When was the last time you intentionally gave someone direct EYE CONTACT while you were communicating with them?
Our athletes did this week! Direct eye contact can say SO many things about you.
This is the list our athletes came up with on what making eye contact with coaches and teammates shows about you:
•you're engaged and listening
•you care about what they are saying
•you respect them
•you are acknowledging that what they have to say deserves attention
•you are willing to be coached and want to get better
Next time you're anywhere, make direct eye contact with the person you are talking to!
(I tried at the McDonald's drive thru and totally caught the employee off guard -- we genuinely smiled at each other and we both knew we were actually acknowledging one another)

When we started 360U Softball in 2016, our goal was to help softball players get better. We found a lot of athletes needing instruction, and wanted to help them bridge the gap between where they were, and where they wanted to be as softball players. VERY quickly, we found that the grand opportunity in front of us was not just to teach mechanics to these young women, but FAR more importantly, to help them understand how truly amazing each and every one of them are and to find their best self.
