Bob Moretti - The Qualities Of An Effective Coach

Bob Moretti is an experienced high school and youth hockey coach who founded Next Goal Wins with the intention of providing expert coaching to as many people as possible. Becoming a good coach is no easy task, regardless of the sport that you work in, and those who excel all have the following qualities that make them effective in the role.

Good Listener

While much of coaching is based around creating drills and giving the people you’re coaching good instructions, it is also important that you have the ability to listen to your players and understand how your techniques might be affecting their games. Focus on non-verbal cues as well as verbal ones to get a good idea of where a player’s mind might be.

Experience

Coaches who enjoy the most success tend to have a lot of experience, either as a player themselves or through having coached for a large period of time. While this doesn’t mean that new coaches should be excluded or looked down upon, having experience makes it easier to command the attention of your players and makes then more likely to follow instructions.

Dedication

Bob Moretti has worked with many young players during the course of his career and recognizes instantly when somebody has the dedication required to succeed. This is a quality that is as important in coaches as it is their players, as those who do not have dedication will not put the required time into building relationships with their players or developing the drills and practice sessions players need in order to improve.

Benefits of Hockey

Hockey is a great sport that can help build confidence, instill discipline, create friendships and learn the value of teamwork. As with most sports, hockey can be beneficial to our youth keeping them healthy with physical activity and help coordinate motor skills. Bob Moretti, a successful architectural specialist, knows the benefits of hockey. He played on his college hockey team, and in high school led a Midget team to a National Championship as its goalie in 1999.

As Bob Moretti knows, it takes intense concentration be a goalie. Opposing players are constantly trying to trick the goalie with head fakes and dekes to break his concentration away from the puck. He says that it takes years of practice and mastering the fundamentals of the position like angles, depth perception, posting, and lateral movements.

In addition to his work with Tremco, Bob Moretti is also the President of a goalie coaching service called Next Goal Wins. "Next Goal Wins provides goalie coaching services for hockey teams and organizations in the Chicago-land area," he says. He says that there are both physical and mental attributes to being a successful goalie and it is important for young players to master them. Players also learn valuable life skills like time management, organization, rules and ethics, and accountability.

Bob Moretti says that it is important for developing goalies to learn how to react to their opponents, and not just hope they will be able to stop the puck. He says that one of the most important things that a young player can achieve is confidence on the ice. Bob Moretti is a construction professional currently working with the Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance company.

Why a Hobby in Model Railroading is Practical

Hobbies are a great way to spend time learning something new and they also give you a break from the day-to-day job. Model railroading, in particular, is one of those hobbies that also gives you the ability to refine certain skills that pertain to life in the real world. Building model railroads can provide useful, real world benefits such as electronic mastery, carpentry, fine detail work, and enhance your creativity. Bob Moretti is an architectural specialist and an expert on roofing. He has eight years of experience as an architectural representative for masonry and roofing.


He prides himself on being a trustworthy source of information for commercial roofing products.


Bob Moretti has a number of interests away from the job, including running, riding his mountain bike, and working on cars. Another hobby of his is building model railroads which is fitting since he is a builder by trade.


Bob Moretti considers himself a model railroader. He has a four foot by eight-foot layout he started back in high school and continues to work on. I would love to one day own a home where I could dedicate an entire large room to my hobby." This is an option that is attractive to many model railroaders who love to create imaginary worlds filled with towns and landscapes through which their model trains travel. Railroaders have been known to recreate the plains of Texas, the Canadian Rockies, even downtown Chicago, or create wholly imaginary settings. Bob Moretti will continue this hobby as he feels it is a great way to relax and finds it to be a rewarding experience.

Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration is an extremely valuable and versatile degree that is not limited to the business world. It is the most sought-after graduate degree in the United States and is internationally recognized, and has the potential to provide a major boost to anyone's career.

MBA programs are rigorous, and most include a curriculum of core subjects covering the spectrum of business related subjects, such as accounting, economics, marketing, and operations. In addition most allow for elective courses that allow students to follow their own personal and professional interests. At some schools, MBA candidates are also required to complete an internship at a company or organization. This has the added benefit of potentially leading to job opportunities after the MBA program has been completed.

In most business schools, MBA candidates are required to have had a few years or more working in the professional world, prior to being admitted to the MBA program. They must also complete a Graduate Management Admission Test or Graduate Record Examination, and with their applications, submit their academic transcripts, along with letters of reference, and perhaps even an essay or statement of purpose describing why they want to pursue an MBA.

It usually takes about two years to complete an MBA program, if it is taken fulltime, although some programs might waive certain classes or offer students accelerated programs. Bob Moretti entered the MBA program at Lake Forest Graduate School in the fall of 2013, and expects to graduate in early 2016 with this MBA and a specialization in organizational behavior. He says that he is interested in knowing what makes businesses tick.

Business Case Studies

Every business is unique, and studying what different businesses have done right and have done wrong is a great way to learn. Business majors usually read a lot of case studies in school, because they provide valuable real-world examples of why some businesses succeed while others fail.


While every business is going to have characteristics that are distinctive to itself, there are lessons that can be drawn from just about any type of business and applied universally. One example that makes a good case study shows that benefits of small businesses. One things about small businesses is that they tend to have lower risk, and a greater potential for creativity in management. A customer screen printing business in Texas started out catering only to large orders, but found there was down time in between clients. It began to fill in the slower periods with smaller orders, and found they could be profitable, and that its competition tended to ignore smaller customers, too. That became the business's market segment.


Another case study illustrates the matter of knowledge that is lost through retirement. Retirees take years of experience with them when they leave, often to the detriment of a business. American Express created a pilot program with a workforce transformation group that allowed retiring employees to gradually give up their responsibilities, and instead devote some of their time to mentoring and teaching their successors. This led to a phased retirement that let employees leave gradually, retain some of their salary and benefits, and share their knowledge and experience.


Bob Moretti is an architectural representative who is working toward his MBA. He enjoys writing and learning about business case studies that have been covered in his classes.

Bob Moretti - CDT Accredited

Bob Moretti is an architectural specialist who works for Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance, a roof restoration company that is based in Ohio. He works closely with the company's clients to help them decide what type of roof they require, and how best to get it designed and installed.


"What I enjoy most about my career is educating and assisting the A/E community through seminars and meetings," he says, meaning the Architectural and Engineering community. "I am an active member of CSI Chicago, earning my CDT accreditation in April of 2013, and a member of the USGBC IL chapter."


CSI is the Construction Specifications Institute, and as a CDT, or Certified Document Technologist, Bob Moretti is certified in his knowledge of construction documents such as blueprints. "I can help architects solve complex roofing details and scenarios," he says. He says that his primary concern in working with the company's clients is to make sure they are getting the best roof that they can afford, even if it means using a company other than Tremco. It is the kind of honesty and commitment that clients remember.


Bob Moretti holds a Bachelor's degree Management from Arizona State University and is currently working toward his Master of Business Administration at Lake Forest Graduate School. He expects to receive it in early 2016. "My dream job is to one day be a manager of an architectural sales team," he says. "I graduated with a degree in management because I am very passionate about working with people. I'm also pursuing my MBA in organizational behavior, because I really want to understand what makes businesses tick."

Bob Moretti - Hockey Lessons

Bob Moretti is a roofing professional in Elgin, Illinois. He has worked at Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance as an architectural specialist for nearly four years and is CDT accredited.


He is also a hockey enthusiast who runs a goalie coaching service called Next Goal Wins. He coaches goalies on teams throughout the Chicago area. "I would like to one day have my own charity that donates hockey equipment to underprivileged kids," he says. "Hockey is a great game, and all kids who want to play should deserve an opportunity to try."


Bob Moretti believes that playing hockey provides young people with many opportunities to learn valuable life lessons. Some of the lessons are pretty basic: you can't win them all, and it takes a team to really succeed. He believes that an underlying message that all hockey coaches should provide their players is that they should have a meaningful experience playing the game, and always strive to get better.


He says that they can learn the value of working in a positive environment where each player is valued for their input and the contributions they make to the team. They can also learn lessons about personal accountability and always doing their best, no matter what the situation is.


Most kids playing hockey are not going to turn pro, or even play much beyond high school. But they can learn from playing the game that their teammates will be their co-workers someday, and that playing on a hockey team is not much different than working for a company. Everyone has a role to play, and when everyone plays their role to the best of their ability then everyone else is going to succeed along with them.

Bob Moretti - Mountain Biking

Bob Moretti works hard as an architectural specialist at Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance. He has been there since August of 2011, and has established himself as a hard working professional who is proud of the company's ninety-eight percent customer satisfaction rate.


With all of that hard work, Bob Moretti looks forward to those times he can get away for some alone time. He is one of an estimated fifty million Americans who has tried mountain biking, and one of what must be an equal number of people who have loved it. With their small wheelbase and rugged construction, mountain bikes are great for getting off the road and into the woods on two wheels, all of it powered by human energy.


It's a fantastic way to keep in shape. As Bob Moretti knows, mountain biking can burn between ten and sixteen calories per minute, depending on how hard the rider is working. That figures out to between six hundred and one thousand calories in an hour. So it's a great way to burn off extra pounds, and increase muscle strength, cardiovascular health, and build the kind of endurance that easily carries over into other areas of life.


Bob Moretti says that he enjoys riding his mountain bike along the Fox River Trail through South Elgin and St. Charles, Illinois. As he knows, the Fox River Trail features some forty-three miles of biking, much of it paved. The trail goes back and forth across the river, providing riders with outstanding views of the area scenery. The trail passes through a number of towns along the way, and as he knows, many businesses have come to embrace the cycling traffic.

Bob Moretti - The Benefits of Vegetated Roofing Systems

As an Architectural Specialist with Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance, Bob Moretti offers a wide variety of effective and cost-efficient roofing systems to his customers. Perhaps one of the most innovate of them all is the vegetated roofing system, where the addition of live plant life helps provide a number of benefits to the longevity and look of the roof. Below is a description of some of those benefits.


Managing Water Discharge

While gutter systems and other such discharge solutions end up needing cleaning and other such solutions of their own, vegetated roofs absorb water and use it to give life to your rooftop. This not only helps reduce maintenance costs but also the headaches that come from faulty systems.


Customizable Appearances

Depending on the levels of accessibility you have to your rooftop, you may want to consider some of the options involved with what you can grow in your particular setting. Some owners like to implement flowers or even vegetables to gain extra value out of their vegetated roofing system.


Publicity

If you are the owner of a building or office park, having a vegetated roof can also help your eligibility towards LEED certification. LEED stands for “Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design” and is a certification designated by the U.S. Green Building Council. The certification comes with various incentives from state and local agencies, depending on where your building is located.


Bob Moretti believes in the vegetated roofing system, and is enthusiastic about sharing its benefits with his customers.

Bob Moretti: What Makes Hockey Unique

As the President of Next Goal Wins Hockey Coaching, Bob Moretti has helped establish strong leadership in hockey programs in Northern Illinois. A lifelong enthusiast for the sport, Moretti is deeply knowledgeable of the fundamentals of hockey and the basic skills that need to be built in order to create effective teams that work together on the ice. For the first-time spectator, there is a whole different set of lessons to teach just so watching the game live can be far more enjoyable. Below are some of the things that every spectator should know about ice hockey.

Game Time

Hockey is unique in the sense that it’s time setup is unlike any other sport. There are three time periods per game, which are unlike the two halves or four quarters models that many conventional sports follow. In the National Hockey League, each period is twenty minutes; however since hockey is a sport that is enjoyed on an international scale at many different playing levels, some leagues may reflect different time regulations.

Overtime

Overtime is when both teams have the same score at the end of regulation. Overtime is also an area that is managed on a non-universal basis and can vary by league; however it is usually settled by one of three ways: sudden death, a shootout, or both. “Sudden Death” means overtime play that ends as soon as one a player scores a goal, resulting in a win for that team.

Fighting

Fighting happens in many full-contact sports, however in hockey, it is something that can be embraced in a very liberal fashion. In most sports (except martial arts), fights are broken up right away and players are penalized or even ejected. In hockey, the fights last longer and the penalties are much less severe, usually resulting in a few minutes in the penalty box.

Bob Moretti loves the game of hockey.

Bob Moretti - The Focuses of Hockey Practice

Bob Moretti is the President of Next Goal Wins, a hockey coaching organization that has helped fuel the success of hockey teams in Northern Illinois. Ice hockey is a tough sport that requires the players be fast and agile skaters. They must also be accurate with their sticks and strong enough to hold their ground against a charging opponent. In order to run a successful hockey program, there must be training exercises implemented at practice that revolve around building these three essential skills. Below are some tips as to how you can create effective drills in these areas.

Skating Ability

With the ice under you at all times in the hockey rink, you must be not only as good on skates as you would be on feet, but better. Speed, agility and endurance are most essential here, and you should have drills that focus on those areas. Setting up cone drills and working to improve lap times are two efficient ways of building the first two aforementioned abilities, while repetition will help fulfill the endurance goal.

Stick Accuracy

In order to move the puck down the ice and into the back of the opponent’s goal, players must be skilled passers and shooters. By forming drills that force your players to test and build their accuracy, in both still and moving fashions, you make them versatile shooters and passers that can make quick and accurate stick motions to get the puck traveling in the right direction.

Strength Training

In a full-contact sport like hockey, strength and weight training is crucial because muscles and strength are what will protect your players when they need it most. In order to block checks and stay on your feet, you must have the necessary strength to ward off your opponents.

Bob Moretti: The 3-on-3 Overtime

Bob Moretti is a lifelong hockey fan, player and overall enthusiast. He keeps up to date on all issues surrounding the sport, and his hometown has proximity to one of the most successful franchises in all of the National Hockey League, the Chicago Blackhawks. He is also highly involved with local youth leagues, where he helps young players develop through providing them with coaches and resources.

One of the most talked about issues going on in hockey this year is the implementation of the 3-on-3 overtime in the National Hockey League. What this means is that instead of having teams at full-force during overtime, each team will only select three players and a goalie to play. This isn’t the first time the NHL has limited the amount of players in overtime, but it is the first time it has been down to such a low number.

The results of this rule have so far been in its favor. Overtime rulings have been coming out faster, as have the number of shots taken and the overall shooting percentages. This has made overtimes much more exciting by clearing up the defensive battle and putting the focus on each team’s offensive attack and the strength of their goalies

Bob Moretti has been a hockey fan his whole life, and has enjoyed watching the sport evolve and progress.

Bob Moretti - Reasons Why Education Is Important

Bob Moretti has always understood that a good education is of the utmost importance, which is why he dedicated himself to graduating from college Summa Cum Laude and is currently studying for his Master’s in Business Administration. All of the below are key reasons for why you should focus on taking full advantage of your educational opportunities.


Career Opportunities


The key reason for why education is important is that those who focus on this aspect of their personal development are offered more diversity in terms of career opportunities and are also well-positioned to ascend the ranks once they have started work. A good education usually leads to a higher salary and a more satisfying career.


Understanding Other Cultures


Educated people are usually able to absorb more of the world around them, developing an understanding for other cultures in the process. This serves to make them more well-rounded people and can also offer a number of advantages in their professional lives, such as the ability to further connections with international clients through understanding of their customs.


Social Life


A good education makes people better able to participate in a range of conversational subjects, which in turn can have positive benefits for their social lives. Being able to engage in conversation with as many people as possible is important for those who value friends.


Independence


Bob Moretti has placed so much focus on his education because he wants to have the ability to choose what he wants to do in life. Education brings with it a sense of self-worth, accomplishment and confidence that all allow people to live independently.

Bob Moretti - Getting Over Public Speaking Anxiety

Though he now has plenty of experience delivering educational seminars to his fellow professionals, Bob Moretti still remembers just how nerve-wracking it was to step out in front of others to speak for the first time. Many who are new to the world of public speaking suffer from anxiety, so try to keep the following in mind to make the experience go smoothly.


Practice In Front Of People


Before you give your speech for real, spend a little bit of time practicing in front of friends and family. Not only will this get you more acclimatized to speaking in front of people, but it will also allow you to work out kinks in the presentation before you deliver it. You may also find you receive some great advice in the process.


Take a Deep Breath


New public speakers are often in such a rush to get the ordeal over with that they practically charge to the stage and rocket through what they have to say. Instead of doing this, taking a moment to absorb your surroundings and breathe a big breath. This will relax your heart rate and allow you to tackle the speech at your own pace.


Don’t Worry About Mistakes


Even experienced public speakers like Bob Moretti will occasionally flub their lines. This happens to the best speakers and is nothing to worry yourself about. You can either move on like nothing ever happened or acknowledge the slip with a little bit of humor to keep your audience engaged. Just don’t focus on it else you may start making even more blunders.

Bob Moretti - Long Distance Running Tips For Beginners

Bob Moretti is an experienced long distance runner, having completed a number of five and eight kilometer races, in addition to completing a half-marathon in less than two hours. The sport is attractive to people for a number of reasons, but it is important that those who have never run over a long distance before are properly prepared before they take on the challenge.


Get The Right Gear

Comfort is going to play a major part in how well you do during a longer run and you will soon find that poor running shoes and bad clothing can have a major effect on your performance. Make sure that you spend your money on quality gear, including a running top that wicks away sweat and comfortable running shoes, rather than going for cheaper options.


Don’t Compare Yourself to Others

Unless you are running a race there is no reason to worry about other runners. As a beginner, this should not be an issue for you and trying to emulate other runners is dangerous as you have no idea about their experience or fitness levels. Instead, focus on your own goals and note your improvements over time.


Start Smaller

Bob Moretti built his running strength up over time before he started competing in long distance races. It is important that you do the same, becoming comfortable with shorter runs before taking on increasingly challenging distances. Long distance running is not something that you will be able to do well at instantly, so dedicate the appropriate amount of time to building yourself up.

Bob Moretti - Tips For Studying For Your Masters Degree

In addition to being the President of Next Goal Wins, Bob Moretti once spent considerable time and effort studying and completing course work for his Masters of Business Administration in Organization Behavior. Taking the step to study for a post-graduate degree can be intimidating, especially for those who have taken some time away from education to start their careers. The following are all useful pointers that should help you during your studies.


Commit To It


You may have a number of new commitments that you didn’t have to deal with during your undergraduate studies, but that is no reason to commit any less than you should to your Masters. You will need to exercise strong time management skills to ensure that you get the necessary study time in, else you will soon start to fall behind others in your class.


Use Your Experience


If you have been away from formal education for a while, it is likely that you have learned an enormous amount about your favored working practices. Turn these to your studies so that you can conduct them more efficiently than you may have done in the past. A greater understanding of yourself, your limitations and your strengths should help you when scheduling your study time.


Get Support


This can be difficult when you have a full-time job and family concerns to worry about, so make sure you have a strong network of friends and family behind you who can offer support and encouragement if you start to struggle.


Bob Moretti graduated in June, earning high honors and the distinction of co-valedictorian.

Bob Moretti - Pointers For Better Hockey Passing

As the President of Next Goal Wins, Bob Moretti provides a comprehensive hockey coaching service. Passing is one of the fundamentals of the game and no team is going to experience sustained success if the players in it or not able to pass accurately and consistently. As a player, you will need to work diligently to get your passing game up to par, so consider the tips below to make improvements.


Always Follow Through

Accuracy is more important than speed when it comes to your passing, especially if you are new to the game and still developing your skills. Following through on the pass so that your stick ends up in the air and pointing towards the intended recipient will play a large role in ensuring the puck goes where you want it to. Work on this aspect of passing until it becomes second nature to you.


No Slapping

You should never feel the puck slap off your stick when making a pass, as this means that you have put too much power into the attempt, often sacrificing accuracy in the process. The puck should almost roll off the blade from the heel towards the toe. Practice executing this sweeping motion, making sure to transfer your weight from your back to your front foot as you do.


Drills

Hockey coaches, like Bob Moretti, will work drills with their teams. Even the most basic of passing drills will help you to improve your skills, so make sure that you focus at all times and listen carefully if your coach points out any issues.

Bob Moretti - Training Tips For Your First Half-Marathon

Bob Moretti is a talented long-distance runner who has completed a half-marathon in less than two hours. Such races present a variety of challenges that you may not have encountered in your previous running efforts, so it is important that you train correctly to ensure you can handle the distance. The following are all useful training tips that you should try to keep in mind.


Build A Strong Base

It is very difficult to go from no regular training to being ready for a half-marathon in a couple of months. This means that you need to build a base of physical fitness on which you can build. Try to get yourself up to a point where you are capable of running between fifteen and twenty miles every week and you can then start to train in earnest.


Make A Plan

Once you feel your fitness levels are up to par, you need to plan effectively to make the most out of your training sessions. Create milestones that you aim to reach in the buildup to the half-marathon and make sure that you build some recovery time into your schedule. Proper time management is essential and you need to keep your motivation levels high to ensure you don’t end up trying to skip training sessions.


Research The Race

Once you have selected a half-marathon to participate in, spend a little bit of time researching the race itself. You should build a solid understanding of the route, plus it is always good to know what, if any, refreshments and drinks will be provided during the race.


Bob Moretti is an experienced long-distance runner.

Bob Moretti - Common Small Business Marketing Mistakes

As a small business owner, Bob Moretti must understand the basic concepts of marketing to ensure that his company achieves success. This is an area where many smaller businesses struggle, especially those that have limited budgets and feel that they need to prioritize other areas over marketing. The following are all blunders that many new entrepreneurs make when trying to gain exposure.


Not Having A Website

Developing a website may seem like a large investment, particularly if you don’t offer services directly over the web, but it has essentially become standard practice in the modern business environment. Many potential customers will search for you online before trying to communicate with you directly and if they can’t find anything they may end up choosing a company that does have an online presence.


Not Researching Competitors

Competitor research should have been a large part of your business plan, but it is also important that you pay attention to their marketing efforts so that you can come up with strategies to counteract them. Failing to keep track of this aspect of marketing could lead to competitors gaining market share while your company stagnates or becomes less popular.


Avoiding Social Media

Social media offers you the chance to build an online profile and communicate directly with followers, all completely free of charge in many cases. Create pages for your business and make sure that you keep them updated, otherwise potential clients may become disengaged.

Bob Moretti - Lessons Learned Through Sports

Bob Moretti is a busy professional who has a lot on his plate each and every day when he goes to work as an architectural specialist. He is employed by Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance, and he lends his expertise to architects who are involved in commercial projects that involve roofing systems. When you are in a demanding position, it can be physically draining, so a workout program can give you the energy and stamina that you need to excel in the workplace. Aerobic exercise is a huge part of this equation, and there are a number of different ways that you can get your aerobic work in.


Running is a form of aerobic exercise Bob Moretti has embraced. This is a highly efficient choice, because you can run just about anywhere. When you are a runner, you can always set new goals for yourself, and this can be very appealing when you are a competitive person who demands a lot of yourself. You can build on your distances, and you can try to cut down your times. Plus, you can train with specific races in mind, like 5K events, half marathons, and marathons. This Chicagoland professional has competed in a number of different races, including a half marathon that he completed in 2012. He finished the race in less than two hours, and this is a very competitive time for a 13.1-mile distance.

The physical benefits that you gain as a regular runner are self-evident, but there is also a mental aspect. When you are running on your own, you can enter into a meditative state as you stay in the moment and concentrate on each stride without thinking about the finish line. Plus, when you run a number of miles each day, you relieve yourself of stress, and you tend to sleep well at night. This general sense of well-being can serve you well when you are interacting with coworkers, family members, and friends.


Without question, running is a great way to stay fit, but it is not for everyone. Some people are not up to the intense pounding on the joints, and this is understandable. If running is not your cup of tea for one reason or another, you can simply resolve to take long daily walks. This can be a relaxing way to unwind after work or during your lunch hour, and if you have a dog, your pet will certainly enjoy the experience. Bob Moretti has a young English Mastiff named Moose, and he greatly enjoys the regular walks that he takes with his dog. These are a couple of ideas to consider, but any form of regular aerobic exercise will enhance your life on multiple different levels.
