Tips and Suggestions for Being A Effective Coach and LeaderAre you taking over a manager position. What style of leadership do you plan to use, have you considered using a coaching style rather than a managing style? Read our articles, thoughts, poems and quotes on coaching in a leadership role - the dynamics of changing from a Manager to a Coach.
We have been in leadership roles and both of us have seen many styles of management come and go.
The latest is coaching and leadership. When the concept was first discussed, we bought books, read articles, basically anything we could get our hands on. A lot of what we read, though, cited models with a lot of theory and full of jargon.
Our own experience proved to be most valuable as we moved from managers to coaches. Now, a few years later, we feel the coaching method is our preferred style.
The benefits and advantages of being a coach outweigh the job of a manager many times over! Coaching a team, encouraging teamwork, does bring results.
As we talk with our friends, however, we realize there are still people struggling with the concept of coaching, and as the coach as leader.
So sit back and share our experiences and thoughts. Hopefully we can paint a picture for you to help you become a great coach! And, if you need some inspiration then print our monthly quote calendar where you will find a quote for each day of the month to encourage and inspire.
