Ecsell Sports teaches coaches at the high school and college levels how to improve the student-athlete experience. As Bill Eckstrom, CEO of Ecsell Sports, explains to Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” that process is done by surveying team members and working with coaches to make improvements in how they communicate.

In this two-part interview, Bill talks about the methodology they use to gather and analyze data to help coaches know which portions of their communications are working and which need to be retooled. There have been some positive results regarding performance and, more importantly, in making the athletic experience better for the student athletes. As young people are still navigating times of unprecedented isolation and mental health challenges, Ecsell’s work to help coaches improve in areas like psychological safety could not have come at a better time.
