7 Qualities of the Leader As Coach -- Free TeleSeminar Recording

Today’s leaders must evolve.  They must make a shift away from a traditional command and control style of leadership to a style of leadership that focuses on energizing and empowering people.

The old way of leading was about motivation - - a short-term, externally based, "technique" driven approach to moving people into action. 

"How can I motivate my team?" was the old question.  Asking this question keeps leaders caught in a downward spiral where they are:

  • Managing merely for results
  • Babysitting the employees’ smallness
  • Trying to eliminate mistakes
  • Creating adrenaline through deadlines
  • Solving all the problems

The old style of leadership is a HUGE energy drain.

Clapping_group_250 The new style of leadership - the style of leadership cutting edge managers and supervisors around the world are moving to - is all about INSPIRATION.

Leadership through INSPIRATION is most easily defined as the "Coach Approach" to leadership.

"How can I inspire my team?" is the question asked by the Coach Leader. 

There are 7 distinct qualities embodied by the Coach Leader that make them naturally inspirational leaders. These include:

  • Coach Leaders are models for others, not just expert managers.
  • Coach Leaders create problem free zones versus being expert problem solvers.
  • Coach Leaders have more then they need.

In September 2008, IATF President & Founder Tom Heck delivered a free live TeleSeminar on the 7 Qualities of the Coach Leader.
