What different types of personalities are there in players?

Types of Players

In his book, "Spike!" Doug Beal, coach of the 1984 U.S. Olympic Gold Medal Men's Volleyball Team, tells of two kinds of players:

"I think there are two kinds of players. The first blindly accepts what the coach says. The second starts from the other side and the coach has to justify everything to him."

Robbie Kilby, One-Man Volleyball Team

Robbie Kilby is a motivational speaker and one-man volleyball team. He does both well, especially playing volleyball. As of August 1998, he'd won 5,197 matches in a row.

That's pretty good for a guy who's only 6' 2", nearly totally deaf in one ear and half deaf in the other, with eyesight so bad an opponent standing across the net from him appears only as a blur.

But his talks are also inspirational. If you'd like to read more about Kilby, his work and his devotion to volleyball, see the August issue of Volleyball Magazine, or visit www.bergen.com/region/brewer1419971214.htm for an article on Kilby from December 14, 1997.

Rob Kilby can be reached at (800) 450-3432 if you'd like to book him for your next meeting ... in the board room or on the beach.
