ABSTRACT: AS A COLLEGIATE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH, YOU PUT A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT IN DESIGNING WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM YOU CAN PROVIDE TO THE ATHLETES YOU WORK WITH. AT TIMES, THIS PROGRAM MAY DIFFER FROM WHAT THE HEAD SPORTS COACH BELIEVES IS THE BEST APPROACH FOR HIS OR HER TEAM, AND THEY MAY REQUEST THAT YOU MAKE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THIS PROGRAM. OBVIOUSLY, THIS CAN CREATE A DIFFICULT WORKING RELATIONSHIP. WE ASKED OUR PANEL OF COACHES HOW THEY WOULD HANDLE THIS SITUATION IN THEIR OWN WORK SETTING.
