DONOHUE ON “COACHING”

Catalyst September Issue 2005

A new book by Pat Williams, Coaching, contains advice to coaches on how to handle young people. Bill Donohue was asked to contribute, and here is what he said: “Youngsters who show early signs of leadership are often very expressive individuals. You hope that they express this leadership ability in good conduct—but some exuberant young leaders express their leadership ability through misbehavior. Adults make a big mistake when they dismiss young people as potential leaders merely because they exhibit problem behavior.”

When asked if he was reflecting on his own life, Donohue said, “You got it.”
