From Wimpy to Edgy: 10 observations to help you become a stronger teamwork coach

The most powerful way to build and lead teams is through a "Coach Approach".

Some mistakenly believe coaching is, by default, wimpy. Yes, there are a lot of wimpy coaches (leaders) however, one of the most common requests from team members is for a strong coach (strong leader).

But what does it mean to be "strong"?
