Touchdown! 3 Ways to Enter the Coaching Hall of Fame

Another exciting Superbowl! What can coaches learn from professional football? A lot, in fact.

From rookies, to wide receivers, to star quarterbacks, football coaches take the time to train and support every player on their team, regardless of their role. Professional sports coaches know that when every member of the team succeeds, the whole team succeeds.

Bill Walsh, Hall of Fame coach of the San Francisco 49ers from 1979 to 1988, is widely recognized for his success with turning the team around. In 10 seasons, the 49ers won six division titles, three conference championships, and three Super Bowls.

3 Steps to Coaching the Bill Walsh Way

1. Get Personal

The best coaches have frank, honest discussions with their teams and understand their values, motivations, and challenges at an intimate level.

2. Coach for Future Potential

Professional coaching is designed to equip employees, teams, leaders, and executives with the skills they need to continue to lead and shape their industry. Play the long game with your clients.

3. Be Proactive

The most effective coaches take the time to understand their client’s goals and aspirations, and how to leverage the way they perceive themselves and others, manage relationships, express themselves, make decisions and manage stress.
