Coaching and Teaching
I listened to a podcast with Steve Kerr today and he talked about how Popovich (Spurs coach) is incredible at constantly challenging his players but still keeping a great relationship with them. Its hard to constantly challenge players because it inevitably leads to conflict. So the easier option is to just let things slide from time to time. But to consistently challenge AND keep the relationships is next to impossible. Just like winning all the time is next to impossible.
