I used to play for some really nasty Captains - you know - those that would do anything (I mean anything) to win. Cheat. Crap on their teammates. Shout at their players. Create drama. Put themselves between partners.
First I wrote a book to try to inspire the ladies to be sweeter. But only the already sweet players bought my book!
So then I realized that I needs to become a captain. And to treat my players with respect and kindness.
And I requested that my teammates also treat their partners and opponents with love too!
A small step but it made a BIG DIFFERENCE!
