Mark Dreibelbis– Associate Commissioner/Supervisor of Officials
Officials Attendance Cards Coaches Sign-In Sheets Ejection/Disqualification Cards New Protocol/Procedure HUDL No Exchange = no complaints, no mark-offs, and no appeals. Either help the officiating program or accept it as status quo. Action Items
Leadership Perceptions…How do you change? 1.By your actions… 2.By your actions… 3.By your actions… The perception…”Your officials are not accountable!”
Leadership What you don’t know _______ hurt you… NO!!! What you DON”T know will hurt you! IGNORANCE is _____ … Ignorance is NOT bliss…do you want to walk around in life being happy and stupid?
Aptitude + Attitude = Altitude. Self-control precedes game control – must manage yourself to manage the contest. Improvement starts with the belief that you need to improve. Don’t get too “experienced” to learn new things about officiating. Leadership
Decision making separates the house painter from the artist. But, in officiating there is room for both the Rembrandts and the Joes. The artist has a smaller window of opportunity to make decisions…they get the play right and that is the difference. Some are better than others and get to a higher altitude because of decision making. Don’t be an officiating “Cannibal” – in officiating we eat our own from jealousy and worry about them “taking our games.” Help/mentor…don’t eat them up. Be a member of the officiating family/fraternity and be a member of the officiating journey and community. Leadership
Trainers Distribute info in a formal setting Mentors Make a connection with the individual(s) Travel the journey with the official Use personal skills and encouragement to take them farther Difference is do you truly want other officials to succeed? Leadership
Confidence comes from preparation – knowledge, decision making, management. If you can’t cover the play, your experience and knowledge won’t cut it. If your window of opportunity (the factor of making a decision/call) is too large, you can’t get over it with years of knowledge. Leadership
People who feel they have the most to lose will be the most resistant to change. People who don’t want to keep up with the journey of success cannot get in the way of people who do. 10 – 80 -- 10 Leadership
