Leadership Lessons: the Value of Expert Coaching
Here’s an interesting statistic, this time from major league baseball:
Major league baseball teams have 25 players. (wait for it…)
Baseball teams have as many as 31 coaches (if you consider the front office staff, scouts and general manager as part of the coaching team). That’s greater than a 1:1 ratio of players to coaches.
If your business is involved in a competitive market, don’t you deserve every opportunity to win? Maybe you should consider adding an expert coach to your roster. If you’ve got the skills but you’re not seeing the results, maybe it’s time to make a change in the process. That’s how the game is played for elite athletes. Coaching is the best way to accelerate your results.
