Leadership Resource 2

Effective leaders are attuned to other people's
feelings and move them in a positive emotional
direction. They speak authentically about their
own values, direction and priorities and resonate
with the emotions of surrounding people. Under
the guidance of an effective leader, people feel
a mutual comfort level. Resonance comes naturally
to people with a high degree of emotional
intelligence (self-awareness, self-management,
social awareness and relationship management) but
involves also intellectual aspects. . (Goleman,
Boyatzis, McKee)
Leadership begins with self knowledge
  • Self knowledge is the basis for character
  • Character is the root of integrity
  • Integrity provides the foundation for

Significant leader characteristics include
  • Ability
  • Knowledge
  • Experience
  • Personality (the most important?)

(Bennis, 1995)
Leadership in simple terms understanding the
vision and direction and enabling others to
cooperate in achieving it.
Leadership is the ability to direct people -
more important to have those people accept that
direction. (Lombardi, 2001, p.31)
Leadership Definition

Coaching is

    figure out the what and why
  • Encouraging them to push themselves to achieve
    the highest possible performance

  • Coaching is a form of leadership that pulls
    together people with diverse talents,
    backgrounds, experiences and interests,
    encourages them to step up to responsibility and
    continued achievement, and treats them as full
    scale partners and contributors.
  • Coaching is not about memorising techniques or
    devising the perfect game plan. It is about
    really paying attention to people really
    believing them, really caring about them, really
    involving them.

(Peters Austin, 1985, p. 232 )

  • (Trenberth and Collins, 1994)

(McConnell, 2000)
  • Much of the current way of leadership revolves
    around empowering the followers to self-lead.
    This is very important in a coach-leadership role
    as empowering athletes enables them to make their
    own decisions and self-lead during performance.

As for the best leaders, the people do not even
notice their existence. The next best people
honour and praise. The next, the people fear the
next the people hate. When the best leaders
work is done the people say we did it ourselves
. (Lao-Tzu in Morris, Willcocks and Knasel,
2000, p 124)
Coach Leadership
  • Coaches must be leaders and build leaders.

To build leaders the coach has to enable athlete
independence so they can perform with freedom and
autonomy to make informed decisions without the
coach around. (Hinkson, 2000)
Does sharing power decrease or enhance team
control for the coach?
Because coaches are responsible for enabling
athletes to learn, coaching is a complex process.

Like other learners, athletes develop
understanding and learn more effectively when
they are involved in solving problems for

Dan Devine
Coaches directly influence athletes by guiding
