Chapter 1. Getting Results Is All About You > Understand Your Role as Coach

Understand Your Role as Coach

“One more job and I quit!” “What do they think I am, a magician?” “I can’t juggle any more responsibilities.” Sound familiar? Well, get used to it in this frenzied, get-more-done-with-less marketplace. There is a lot more to do and a lot less people to do it; there are a lot more demands from the customers and a lot less ability to fulfill them all; and, there are a lot more questions on how to manage and a lot less answers. There is also a bad news/good news response: The bad news is that you are expected to juggle another role. The good news is that role is to be a coach.

Coaching is not an ability you are born with. Neither does it only relate to sports. It is more than leading a team on the court or the troops in the field. It’s more than pumping people up. It is, however, about getting the results that let you sleep at night. It is about how you manage an effective team and a productive group. It’s about how you are successful.
