The missing how-to manual for being an effective team leader The Art of Coaching Teams is the manual you never received when you signed on to lead a team. Being a great teacher is one thing, but leading a team, or team development, is an entirely different dynamic. Your successes are public, but so are your failures—and there's no specific rubric or curriculum to give you direction. Team development is an art form, and this book is your how-to guide to doing it effectively. You'll learn the administrative tasks that keep your team on track, and you'll gain access to a wealth of downloadable tools that simplify the "getting organized" process. Just as importantly, you'll explore what it means to be the kind of leader that can bring people together to accomplish difficult tasks. You'll find practical suggestions, tools, and clear instructions for the logistics of team development as well as for building trust, developing healthy communication, and managing conflict. Inside these pages you'll find concrete guidance on: Designing agendas, making decisions, establishing effective protocols, and more Boosting your resilience, understanding and managing your emotions, and meeting your goals Cultivating your team's emotional intelligence and dealing with cynicism Utilizing practical tools to create a customized framework for developing highly effective teams There is no universal formula for building a great team, because every team is different. Different skills, abilities, personalities, and goals make a one-size-fits-all approach ineffective at best. Instead, The Art of Coaching Teams provides a practical framework to help you develop your group as a whole, and keep the team moving toward their common goals.

Coaching Matters is a book on the principles that underline the Australian game of football. Based on David Wheadon's extensive career as an assistant coach at many AFL clubs, and with a primary focus on AFL, it is also a comparative study of the other sports around the world and the great similarities in the principles inherent to those sports and Australian football. Coaching Matters draws heavily from Wheadon's personal experience, but is enhanced by conversations with some of the key leaders and coaching models during his time in football. No other book has gone deeper into the game of football to explore and define footy at the highest level. A practitioner's guide peppered with anecdotal evidence, it is also a fantastic resource for all coaches across all sporting codes, and the general public.

The Art of Coaching Clergy

A Handbook for Church Leaders, Clergy and Coaches

Coaching clergy has become the fastest growing and most effective means to leadership effectiveness over the past ten years. It is now an organic movement within the Christian Church! The Art of Coaching Clergy is a generous gift to church leaders and the coaching movement from a foremost thought-leader in the field. The book illustrates a variety of ways coaching is applied to strengthen the work of clergy and laity, and describes various means of developing coaching systems and peer coaching networks. It takes a deep dive into the theology and biblical foundations for coaching, as well as offering helpful "how to" sections for hiring a coach, becoming a coach and living the life of a coach. Coaching differs from the long list of latest and greatest "quick fixes" to come along to save the church, in that it is not a formula, or a program, or a curriculum. It is a relationship of authenticity. Coaching is an affiliation that is highly personal, deeply intentional, and always contextual. It helps pastors and laity be the best leaders they can be for the sake of their congregations. Think of clergy coaching as the art of purposeful conversation applied to the archaeology of the soul. Whether you are clergy, lay, or a denominational leader, in these pages you will find a clear picture of the art of coaching with a spiritual context.

A practical framework to avoid burnout and keep great teachers teaching Onward tackles the problem of educator stress, and provides a practical framework for taking the burnout out of teaching. Stress is part of the job, but when 70 percent of teachers quit within their first five years because the stress is making them physically and mentally ill, things have gone too far. Unsurprisingly, these effects are highest in difficult-to-fill positions such as math, science, and foreign languages, and in urban areas and secondary classrooms—places where we need our teachers to be especially motivated and engaged. This book offers a path to resiliency to help teachers weather the storms and bounce back—and work toward banishing the rain for good. This actionable framework gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. You’ll learn how a simple shift in mindset can affect your outlook, and how taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is one of the most important things you can do. The companion workbook helps you put the framework into action, streamlining your way toward renewal and strength. Cultivate resilience with a four-part framework based on 12 key habits Uncover your true self, understand emotions, and use your energy where it counts Adopt a mindful, story-telling approach to communication and community building Keep learning, playing, and creating to create an environment of collective celebration By cultivating resilience in schools, we help ensure that we are working in, teaching in, and leading organizations where every child thrives, and where the potential of every child is recognized and nurtured. Onward provides a step-by-step plan for reigniting that spark.

In the world of strength and conditioning, learning how to move others-not just physically, but also psychologically and emotionally-is paramount to getting the most out of them. People are the ultimate performance variable, and understanding how to effectively blend knowledge of proper training with the nuances of human behavior is integral to helping athletes achieve their ultimate goals. Unfortunately, while much attention has been given to the science of physical training, little attention has been given to the science of communication. Conscious Coaching: The Art and Science of Building Buy-In bridges this gap. Readers learn the foundational principles of improving relationships, enhancing engagement, and gaining the trust of athletes through targeted communication. And, every bit as important, readers also learn concrete strategies to apply these principles in day-to-day coaching situations they will inevitably encounter. The result is a game-changing book that sets the stage for coaches to create a culture of success not only within sport, but also beyond. Conscious Coaching is a movement and its time has come.

Embrace the Power of Executive Coaching With businesses becoming more complex, they tend to lean on their high performers to keep the company first class, fend off competitors, innovate, or pivot to new, unexplored markets. But who do these executives and leaders turn to when they need to refine their own skills? Executive coaches. In The Art of Executive Coaching, Dr. Nadine Greiner lets you in on the secrets, tips, and tricks to unlocking the better performance leaders need to thrive. Follow along as she tells nine stories of an executive coach, Alice Well, and her clients. With Alice’s help, these individuals learn to adapt their personal leadership styles, illuminate their blind spots, and adopt new ways of relating and managing to benefit their teams and organizations. But it’s not all smooth sailing—this coach shares the bumps along the way, too. With this book, aspiring executive coaches will understand why coaching works so well—why certain techniques enable leaders to achieve dramatic results in a relatively short time. And yet, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to executive coaching. No step-by-step procedure that will work, without fail, for each new client. Intuitively, that makes sense. As these stories show, you must adapt your approach to meet the unique needs, traits, and habits of each leader. That’s part of what makes the business of executive coaching thrilling—but also increasingly in demand. No executive is perfect; there’s always room for improvement—improvement that can have impressive effects on the business, its employees, and its customers. The skilled executive coach helps make this possible.
