Jesse Mahoney, head volleyball coach at University of Colorado, has recently led the Buffs back to the NCAA tournament after a 20 year hiatus. Prior to being named head coach in 2015, Mahoney had success at University of Denver where he coached 17 all-conference selections and won the Summit League season championship during his final two years.

Here, Mahoney talks with the Art of Coaching about the importance of having a strong values system as a head coach. Making sure you collaborate with your assistants and are repeating the same messaging to your athletes is important. Mahoney also touches on the value of holding individual meetings with your athletes to reconnect with them and how to handle resiliency when other opponents are critiquing you.
