Ten Qualities Of Great Coaches

  1. 1. Ten Qualities of Great Coaches:CORE COACHING QUALITIES IF GREATNESS IS YOUR GOAL.<br />R<br />Wayne Goldsmith<br />THE COACHING BRAIN<br />www.sportscoachingbrain.com<br />
  2. 2. CORE COACHING QUALITY 1<br />Excellence is not the issue – everything is excellent – it’s about relevance and context.<br />It is no longer about what you know – the internet has made sure that everyone knows what you know – it’s now about how, when, where and why you do what you do.<br />1<br />
  3. 3. CORE COACHING QUALITY 2<br />The name of the game is living<br />success.<br />Having a set of rules and standards that guide the direction of your life, the decisions you make and the destiny of your dreams…everyday.<br />2<br />
  4. 4. CORE COACHING QUALITY 3<br />Change is critical<br />But – you need to accept that everyone is changing – the real challenge is to accelerate your rate of change faster than your opposition.<br />3<br />
  5. 5. CORE COACHING QUALITY 4<br />All change is personal - all real change must be made at an individual level<br />So in the end change comes down to your ability to engage the hearts and minds of everyone in your team.<br />4<br />
  6. 6. CORE COACHING QUALITY 5<br />The difference between good and great is simple: it’s about doing more – more often. <br />Most people do the minimum standard – the great ones do more than they are asked – they challenge themselves to improve and get better – they do more than is expected. How can you be great if you do the “average” – being great is about doing more than the average.<br />5<br />
  7. 7. CORE COACHING QUALITY 6<br />Greatness means being different – it means being unique.<br />It means being first. It means taking risks. No one becomes great by being the best copier or best at being someone else: be yourself – back yourself.<br />6<br />
  8. 8. CORE COACHING QUALITY 7<br />And………conflict is inevitable.Learn to thrive in conflict. Learn to fight hard (but fair) for what you believe in. <br />All the greatest people in history have had to face conflict and challenge (and even ridicule and resentment) when they decided to stand up for what they believed in.<br />7<br />
  9. 9. CORE COACHING QUALITY 8<br />Understand who you are – who you really are – and be happy being you. <br />You can not be successful being someone else, living someone else’s biography or following someone else’s mantra. Be yourself – back yourself.<br />8<br />
  10. 10. CORE COACHING QUALITY 9<br />Make tough choices every day – and stick to them.<br />No leader who has been successful is known for being a quiet, uncertain person who can’t make decisions. Decision making is a core quality of great leadership and a fundamental aspect of greatness.<br />9<br />
  11. 11. CORE COACHING QUALITY 10<br />Continuous improvement is <br />everything. <br />It is not about winning once - it is about continually challenging, changing, learning, evolving and improving so that you are always striving to be better. <br />10<br />
