Calling Up is a guide for coaches of all sports at all levels that presents a step-by-step process to building a transformational culture, starting with changing coaching behaviors, attitudes, and language.

Modern-day coaches face the same challenges every day: entitled youth, overinvolved parents, and the community and administrationís expectation for wins. Coaching does not just take a great deal of time; it takes an emotional and physical toll, and coaches need to know they are not the only ones facing these struggles. After over 11 years of coaching, and his own coaching philosophy transformation, J.P. Nerbun felt called to share the hard lessons that could not be found in a book when he started coaching. Calling Up provides an easily accessible and inspiring story as J.P. details the transformative experience of a high school basketball coach named Daniel and his year-long struggle to keep his job while working to become the coach he always wanted to be.

Apart from the entertaining and relatable story, which connects with coaches on a personal level, Calling Up provides coaches with principles based on scientific research and personal experience that explore how people learn, what motivates them, and the human condition. These principles are shared by some of the most highly qualified and successful coaches in sports and J.P. also provides specific tools and explains how those tools are applied within the context of a team. At the end of the day, Calling Up shows coaches not just how to build great athletes, but how to build great people.

J.P. Nerbun is a writer, speaker, podcast host, mentor, coach, and sports consultant. After coaching at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels across the globe he founded Thrive On Challenge with the mission to help people in sports use it for good, to transform the lives of others. Currently, he lives in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania with his wife and two children. J.P. has also lived in Chattanooga, TN, Limerick Ireland, and Columbia, SC.
