Rhonda Revelle is an American softball coach and former collegiate pitcher
As a player she represented the University of Nebraska and played in the team at the inaugural Women’s College World Series. She transitioned into coaching in 1986 and in 1993 became the Head Coach of her alma mater. She has gone on to record over 1000 career wins across her 31 years as a coach including, 3× Big 12 Conference Tournament wins and one Big Ten Tournament victory. She has also led the team to the NCAA tournament on 20 occasions and 3 times to the Women’s College World Series.
Rhonda is a leader with a deep sense of self and connectedness. In this insightful interview some of the highlights for me were:
- The 3 questions she asks herself everyday: have I helped someone today? Have I worked to make deep connections today? in my responses to others today, did I choose love? But also, how these questions have changed since her coaching style was very publically challenged.
- The story she shares about the work the team did on Feedback routines, and how they role played having difficult conversations, so they were more prepared for them when they occurred.
- And Her view that leadership is dealing with shades of gray, and how she works with the teams leadership group to help them develop their decision making skills in this area.
