- Positive Coaching Alliance encourages you to understand the different types of leadership. There are quiet leaders, who most often lead by example. Seeing those players giving their all, teammates are bound to follow. There also are vocal leaders, who say the right things at the right times and may even yell to get their teammates excited and to create a sense of urgency for all the players on the team to boost their levels of energy and effort. Players who understand the different types of leadership can begin to try those different leadership roles on for size and see what type of leader they want to be and can be.
