Coach to Coach: An Empowering Story About How to Be a Great Leader by Martin Rooney
To be a great coach is not just about the X's and O's of a sport, business or parenting, but also about the ability to bring more out of a person than they thought was possible. If being a coach is such an important job, you might wonder why the list of great coaches, parents and bosses seem so short? One reason could be that while many athletes are born with physical attributes that can lead them to greatness, a great coach requires much more than natural skill and talent. Great coaches aren't born, they're made.
