The world’s most successful coaches have a clear sense of why they coach (purpose) and the principles that guide their everyday actions (core values). The purpose of this webinar is to share examples of how successful coaches identify, articulate, and use their purpose and core values to create a strong foundation for leadership.

Webinar outline

  • Finding your purpose as a coach (understanding why you coach and the type of lasting impact you want to make in the lives of those you coach)
  • Creating core values and a coaching philosophy that align with your purpose as a coach (staying true to who you are as a coach)
  • Core values and philosophies of successful coaches (specific examples from high school, college, professional and Olympic coaches across sports)
  • Educating your athletes and teams about core values and your coaching philosophy (strategies used by effective coaches for teaching athletes how to embrace core values and principles of a coaching philosophy)
