I'm a leadership coach, consultant and facilitator who works with athletic coaches of all sports - from high school and club coaches to college and professional coaches.
The truth is that many coaches just run around winging it…and hope what they do will work.
Not all coaches lead the same way. It can be easy to compare yourself to another coach and try and do things the same way.
Get to know your unique gifts and talents and develop a style that’s authentic to you.
There’s no step-by-step manual for coaches to follow outside the x’s and o’s of your sport. When you’re leading a group you’ll always have unexpected challenges that come up - that’s just the nature of coaching.
The best leaders learn how to respond to challenges and use them as lessons for their athletes to grow and expand. That’s the magic and power of being a coach!
