Great groups need a great coach

Great groups need a great coach

Some words of wisdom from some great coaches…

  • Greatness starts with great people – coaches know that an excellent system can produce a very good team, but to produce a truly great team you need superb talent
  • Every great group has a strong leader – the leader has to be worthy of the group.  He or she must warrant the respect of people.  Everyone must have complete faith in the leader’s instincts
  • Great groups are optimistic, not realistic – great things are accomplished by talented people who think they will accomplish them.  Optimism doesn’t replace talent, but pessimism will prevent talent from blooming
  • The leaders of great groups give them what they need and free them from distraction – the coach acts as a buffer between the group members and the things that could complicate their lives or interfere with their performance
