I have been totally immersed in coaching coaches the last three weeks in New Zealand. On reflecting on what I saw and have seen throughout my career there are three key ingredients that are the determining factors in the difference between good and great coaches:
Passion – This is the fuel that drives everything. It is what drives you forward in the good times and the bad.
Knowledge – This is the guide that provides the direction and context to guide the passion.
Experience(s) – This is what provides the perspective. It is what allows you to keep the big picture in mind and the end always in sight.
