What Great Coaches Do Differently: 11 Elements of Effective Coaching
Haworth, Rob; Whitaker, Todd
Eye on Education
Why do some athletic coaches succeed every season while others suffer loss after loss? This book describes the beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes of great athletic coaches. Where do they focus their attention? How do they spend their time and energy? And how can others gain the same advantages? Here, Rob Haworth and Todd Whitaker describe the qualities of champion athletes, coaches, and parents. Applying and extending the concepts presented in Whitaker's "What Great Teachers Do Differently" and "What Great Principals Do Differently," this book demonstrates how effective coaching calls for "people skills" that the best coaches practice every day. Perfect for the coaches of your favorite school sports teams! Chapters of this book include: (1) Why Look at Great?; (2) People, Not Programs; (3) Inside Out; (4) Coaching 101; (5) Your Best Athlete; (6) Expectations; (7) Playing Time; (8) Who is the Most Comfortable?; (9) Planning; (10) Over-Coaching; and (11) Winning.
