Great coaches help to create a culture that unleashes the highest talents and diverse skills and contributions of people. The mindset of a mediocre leader is “My job is to micromanage and control my people to get results.” The mindset of a great leader is “My job is to release the talent, passion and ingenuity of all our people.” Most individuals underestimate their own talents. As a coach you need to know how to help people tap into the unique store of talents and strengths they already have – Michael K. Simpson
Michael Simpson is the author of the book ‘Unlocking Potential’. If you believe that coaching top talent is a core element of leadership of the 21st century, then I recommend reading this book.
