Think of a great coach you’ve had in the past.
What kind of behaviours come to mind when you think of this person?
Is it that they pushed you to be the best you could be?
Did they hold you accountable?
Was it that they always showed up for you and had your back?
What about on the flip side; if you think of a bad coach you’ve had, what comes to mind?
Someone who didn’t have your back?
Someone who you felt didn’t care about you or push you to be better?
Or did they just completely ignore you all together?
Let me ask you, how do you want to be remembered?
Being a great coach is all about unlocking the potential within someone. It’s about helping them to learn rather than teaching them.
It’s a mindset and a decision, one that needs to be made over and over, in every interaction you have with your team.
