How To Coach A Team

Here are some great tips (and reminders) for how to be an effective coach of a team, from the author of, Unbundle It, C. Elliott Haverlack:

  • The best coaches embrace variety
  • Individual praise is most often best done in private
  • Correcting behavior should always be done in private
  • The team trumps the individual when it comes to recognition

And, as a leader, you should step back and ask yourself two questions:

  1. Am I leading or am I part of a group of talented individuals who have been thrown together as a team?
  2. Am I leading or am I part of a great team who has members who are talented?

Number 2 is far more powerful and will win more frequently and more reliably.
