having a clear vision

Vision, behaviours, values and ambition are what drives the coach. However it would amaze you how many coaches are not clear on these key areas! As a leader of a group of people we are always going to be challenged and therefore it is essential to have an identifiable personal coaching brand which we can utilise as a framework to lead and manage players and staff with confidence.

visualise a coach you admire

I want you to think of a leading coach, someone you potentially look up to or admire. Now, on a bit of paper I would like you to answer the following questions;

What are the clear characteristics you see from this coach? What is their motivation? What insights have you got to how they manage their players and staff? What are their strengths?

Ok, so now you have answered the above questions, give some thought into how you might be described by your former players, staff, board and supporters. Did you have certain characteristics and style that were clearly identifiable to you? Where your behaviours consistent and based upon your values as a person?

How did you go? I've have been interested in this with topic for a number of years and it lead me to research and create the Coach Identity course on the back of asking these specific questions.

CREATING THE COACH IDENTITY COURSE

When I began creating the Coach Identity course I had a real desire to understand strategic management and how that can apply to the modern coach. Our role as a leader or coach can by multi-faceted and I thought with all of those moving parts, and management of staff, how does a Head Coach function with clarity and purpose continuously.

I then focused on the individual , and it soon became apparent that we as coaches ask our players for commitment, professional behaviours, standards and focus continuously, however how many coaches create their own Coach Identity to which they hold themselves accountable?

I have supported coaches from America, Australia, Belgium, Costa Rica, Denmark, England, Spain and Scotland all of whom have found that the Coach Identity course supplements their technical and tactical qualification as the specific learning outcomes within the course are never covered on the standard football coaching course curriculum.
