More than just delivering results, the coach’s role is to grow rounded and grounded human beings.

Skip to 0 minutes and 49 seconds For me, leadership is about creating a fertile environment for others to learn, grow, and achieve whatever is important to them within the context of the team. The importance of this is to grow people, both personally and professionally, ideally to produce valuable outcomes for the world they impact. All this needs to happen within the context of the fast changing and coaching landscape. Whatever your interest in coaching or leadership, whether in sports, business, or any other purpose, I look forward to sharing my insights and, hopefully, helping you become an even better leader.
