The Full 90 with Mike Avery

90 word reflections on coaching. (Not as easy as it sounds, but neither is coaching.)


Reflection 8: 90 words on "closing the gaps".

We all crave connection, understanding, respect.

To be seen, heard, celebrated.

And, we all have work to do.

Inclusion can not exist without diversity, diversity can not exist without trust, trust can not exist without authenticity, authenticity can not exist without vulnerability, vulnerability can not exist without self-acceptance, self-acceptance can not exist without self-love, self-love can not exist without love.

I don’t believe God lives “up there”.

I think he/she/it exists in the spaces between people.

Our goal is simply this:

Close the gaps.


I am not dealing with footballers, I am dealing with people. They have fears and worry about failing and making fools of themselves in front of 80,000 people. I have to make them see that without each other they are nothing. - Pep Guardiola
