Sunglasses OFF (Eyes reveal a lot)

I look with interest at news clips and photos (local paper) of coaches at half time, three quarter time giving their chargers instructions with their sunglasses on.

Why would you believe a person giving orders while hiding behind his sunglasses? It would be like taking orders from your TV, someone talking behind the screen.

Take your sunnies off, allow players to see the whites of your eyes and you theirs. Allow them to see the passion you possess, let the players follow your eyes by watching and listening to your creative thoughts, let them see the honesty, the feeling in your words, they need to see the person you are and how genuine you feel for them and your club, they can only do this by seeing the “whites of your eyes”.

STOP HIDING.

You may obviously return your sunglasses to your eyes outside of times you are delivering messages to ensure you are providing your eyes with the safety they require - but not when you are delivering EYE TO EYE DIRECT MESSAGES.
