OK. Let’s talk about how to develop world class coaches.
Grab a piece of paper. On one side of the paper, write down the characteristics of a great coach.
Does your list include any or all of the following:
- Outstanding communicator
- Conflict resolver
- Media manager
- Public relations genius
- Team developer
- People manager
- Technical / tactical / strategic skills of the highest order
OK – now turn the page over and write down a list of all the coach education programs which cover the above?
Is this side of the paper blank? Yes? Then we can begin.
