Someone sent me this pic of me coaching my son this weekend and It prompted me to share a thought about criticism and feedback- clearly my 8-year old has got it down …
Taking constructive criticism can (most often will) help you succeed. Sometimes we may not want to ‘hear’ it or we don’t ‘ask’ for it … yet it can give us a new perspective and open our eyes to things we may have overlooked or never considered.
Whether it’s a peer review of our work or a coach sharing how to avoid a defensive double-team on the court ☺️- constructive criticism and feedback can help us grow.
JENKINS ELITEHOOPS Academy is the labor of love of its Founder, local professional basketball standout and three-sport athlete, William Jenkins. A Glendale, WI native, William began garnering athletic accolades early in his life, culminating in being named to the Nicolet High School Hall of Fame for his academic and athletic achievements in basketball, volleyball, and baseball. Following high school, William was awarded a four-year full scholarship to play at Men’s basketball powerhouse Valparaiso University where he was an integral starting member of the Cinderella team that prevailed in one of the most famous NCAA Men's Basketball tournament games of all time resulting in the ESPY award-nominated ’The Shot' Valpo vs Ole Miss.’ Continuing his basketball prowess after graduating college with a degree in Business & Psychology, William played professional basketball in Europe. Today, you can find William coaching his children and helping young athletes to learn, develop and master basketball fundamentals. Jenkins now resides in Prosper, TX with his wife and two children.
