As part of our leadership training, we use a coaching simulation to teach managers how to be coaches. Here are some of the insights from that simulation:
1. Good coaches don’t have to be the best players – In most professional sports, the coaches are not former elite players. Sometimes a great athlete or a great employee can’t teach others how to get better. Good coaches are good teachers.
2. Coaches don’t demand respect, they earn it – A good coach doesn’t have to threaten his team in order to show them who’s boss. The coach who shows respect to players ends up earning their respect. If a player, or employee gets out of line, the coach can still apply consequences without threatening.
3. Coaches know that players want to succeed – In sports and business, we know that it’s not enough to make sure that everyone is happy – people want to win and succeed. A good coach sets ambitious goals, encourages players and celebrates success.
Consider attending my Leadership Boot Camp, June 3rd and 4th at the Windsor Club in Windsor, Ontario.
Normally I do most of my training exclusively for one organization at a time. People have been asking me if I could offer a public leadership training program so organizations can send one, two or three people. On June 3rd and 4th, I am running my first two-day public Leadership Boot Camp at the exclusive Windsor Club (no roughing it at this camp).
I will be covering all of the skill sets that managers, supervisors and team leaders need to be more effective and achieve better performance.
In order to make sure that each person gets my maximum attention, I am only accepting 25 participants. So if you are interested in joining me for this exclusive opportunity, please visit www.LeadershipWizard.com or call me at 1-866-700-9043.
