The Effects of Good Coaches on the Bottom Line

Business managers could take queues from the sporting world, (perhaps forgoing the Gatorade showers after the big meeting) but like their coaching counterparts the more successful managers realize that they’re not just managing groups of people, but rather coaching people that make up dynamic and effective teams.

The world’s best sports coaches develop each team member to reach their full potential, while simultaneously pushing the entire team to success. Likewise, good business managers realize managing or coaching ‘through their teams’ can help their own teams to be more successful.

Effective coaches observe and understand the social dynamics of their teams, as well as the individual skills & strengths of each of the team members, and then guide these strengths and social bonds to come together with shared goals and purposes. This elevates a team’s engagement & performance, as well as its company’s bottom line.
