Italian Giovanni Guidetti, who currently coaches professionally in Turkey and internationally for the Turkish Women's National Team, has probably made most of his reputation since leaving his native country. He's done so at both the club and international level. Though English is obviously not his first language, he speaks quite eloquently on the subject of coaching.
His resume includes:
- 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League Silver Medal as Head Coach of the Turkish Women's National Team
- 2016 Olympic Semifinalist as Head Coach of the Dutch Women's National Team
- Former Head Coach for both Germany and Bulgaria.
- Multiple CEV Champions League gold medals and an FIVB Club World Championship Gold coaching at the professional club level.
- Twice named Coach of the Year in his native Italy
Here's some of what Giovanni discusses in his interview:
- The need for a coach to be true to themselves
- Being a teacher and a competitor
- Training philosophy
- Developing the concept of team
Giovanni's interview is also featured in the first Volleyball Coaching Wizards book
