Are the people who report to you giving you their best? Is your team--whether a group of employees, a classroom of students, or your family--performing at its fullest potential?
NFL coaching legend Don Shula and renowned business consultant Ken Blanchard team up in Everyone's a Coach to share their secrets for inspiring others to greatness. At the heart of their book is a simple acronym that describes the qualities of an effective leader:
- Conviction-driven--never compromise your beliefs.
- Overlearning--practice until it's perfect.
- Audible-ready--know when to change.
- Consistency--respond predictably to performance.
- Honesty-based--walk your talk.
Using an effective tag-team approach, Shula and Blanchard personally unpack the five leadership secrets behind this acronym. First, Shula tells you how each coaching concept worked on the field. Then, Blanchard explains how to apply that concept to your leadership situation. Complete with a self-test for measuring your personal coaching effectiveness, Everyone's a Coach will help you unleash the excellence in anyone.
