You might remember an earlier article about our consultant client Szabolcs Hollósi in Szombathely, Hungary – we’re sharing an update!
Szabolcs has been working with Hungarian futsal team, Haladás VSE – a team established for a decade, who won the 2020 Futsal Hungarian Cup (win 4:2). In front of a home crowd, Haladás VSE strategically connected players with a combination of spontaneous and well-rehearsed sequences, converting goals from incredibly narrow angles. The team is now well placed to win this year’s championship defeating last year’s winner Berettyóújfalu. Unfortunately the play-off phase of the national championship was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the team didn’t get the chance to win the gold medal. But, they will go for it next year.
Szabolcs started working with the team in May last year at the request of Sports Director Zsolt Bokor. With a new Head Coach and many new players, the energy was high but it was still critical for the team’s success to take time to establish the relationships and new combinations.
So, Szabolcs facilitated a successful workshop for both players and the coaching team about the application of DISC Profiling in sport. Continuing his work with the team, he completed player profiles last October – using AthleteDISC Profiles for the players and CoachDISC Profiles for the coaches (both of which are now available in Hungarian exclusively through Szabolcs’ company, Kell Egy Csapat Élmény Kft). To ensure that each athlete knew how to apply the information contained in their individual AthleteDISC Profile, Szabolcs held one-on-one debrief session in January this year. During the debrief sessions, Szabolcs and the Head Coach also took the opportunity to use their DISC knowledge and the individual player profiles to resolve any internal conflict.
Of the importance of the debrief sessions, Szabolcs says, “we aim to support the team in processing and making use of the information in the reports, as well developing their mental toughness.”
In very honest accounts, the Head Coach, Juan Ramón Calvo Rodríguez, Assistant Coach, András Sziffer, team captain, Péter Horváth and Serbian International Player Milos Simic, give their feedback about the Athlete Assessments DISC process and the team building workshop.
These insights were representative of each player’s experience. Szabolcs continues his successful work across all sports including a first division Men basketball team and a Women football team.
