You’ve seen him at all the games. He stands over his players like a cloud of rage, doubt and fear all wrapped up into one. He forms a ring of tension that follows him everywhere he goes. His players are trying not to fail because they’re aware of the verbal abuse that will eventually rain down on them.

You’ve seen him at all the games. He stands over his players like a cloud of rage, doubt and fear all wrapped up into one. He forms a ring of tension that follows him everywhere he goes. His players are trying not to fail because they’re aware of the verbal abuse that will eventually rain down on them.

You’ve all seen him at the games. His name is Coach.

I’ve certainly had coaches like this. I’m sure most of you reading this have had at least one coach like this in your playing career, or maybe you currently have a boss who fits this description.

Maybe YOU fit this description.

Whatever the case, there’s no judgement here – in fact I often tell hitters that my cage is always a judgement-free zone . We’ve all been there. We’re all competitive. As coaches we have high expectations. We see potential. We dream big. We want to get the most out of the teams we work so hard to build!

At the same time, after working with thousands of coaches around the world from Major League Baseball down to the high school level, I’ve noticed that the most effective and impactful coaches share a common kind of CHARACTER. What’s more, their journey took them through a similar process from being a transactional coach to a transformational coach.

The purpose of this course is to reveal the CHARACTERistics common to all TRANSFORMATIONAL coaches.

Along the way, we hope to get you started on the process of developing these characteristics.

By the way… Developing the CHARACTER of a transformational coach doesn’t mean you have to forfeit your unique personality nor coaching style. Rather, you learn to use your own personality and style for the maximum good. The result is a lasting impact that far surpasses the win-loss column. Ironically, this kind of legacy often produces the “success” the coach was after in the first place (especially after they’ve truly let go of it).

That said…

Here are 5 common characteristics of transformational coaches:

  • They discovered their true WHY.
  • They prioritize relationships.
  • They create a culture of ownership.
  • They teach the person first.
  • They inspire someone every day.

In this course, we’ll unpack each of these points individually. We’ll also suggest ways to start putting each point into action. The material is short, but the process is long. Do the work! There’s no shortcut!
