Beschreibungen

<b>Connect, engage, motivate, and inspire using top coaching techniques</b> <p><i>Coaching Up!</i> is about inspiring those who matter to you to achieve peak performance. Whether you are a coach, a business leader, a civic activist, a teacher, a counselor, or a parent, this book will offer you a powerful, highly effective way to connect to the people you care about and move them forward toward their best selves. In sports, coaches have developed ways of connecting with their players <i>quickly</i> in the "heat of the battle," inspiring them to perform to their fullest potential and "leave it all on the field." Interestingly, although these techniques have not been codified, great coaches have independently developed remarkably similar models. This book aligns these techniques and distills their essence into a fundamental skill set that anyone can use to connect with, support, and inspire his or her colleagues, teammates, friends, and family members. At its foundation, great coaching is based on a solid set of techniques that can be applied to all areas of life. Essentially, those skills boil down to forging authentic connections, providing genuine support, and offering concise direction.</p> <p>While our everyday pressures may be less intense than those of a championship, the long-term game is even more important. Why not borrow from the best to develop the skills and abilities to win every day?</p> <ul> <li>Inspire and motivate people to higher performance</li> <li>Improve communication in high-stakes situations</li> <li>Be more effective both professionally and socially</li> </ul> <p>Getting inside the way great coaching works gives you an unparalleled glimpse at the core of inspiration. A great coach can make the difference between a mediocre player and a world champion. What would that difference look like if you could inspire every colleague in your business? Everyone who matters to you in your personal life? You can be the source of empowerment and motivation that helps the people around you reach higher, go further, and achieve more. <i>Coaching Up!</i> gives you the game plan—and shows you how to run the plays.</p>

<p>One of the most dramatic situations in sports arises when the clock is ticking down, the odds are stacked against the underdogs, and the players turn to the coach for the motivation they need to dig deep within themselves and pull off the win. Similar moments of truth, in which the people around us need inspiration and direction, happen all the time in our day-to-day lives. <i>Coaching Up!</i> gives you a proven formula for moving your colleagues, family members, and friends ahead to achieve their highest goals. <p>Written by a former professional basketball player and coach turned successful entrepreneur, this game-changing resource shares the three-part formula he uses as the philosophical cornerstone of the company he founded, CoachUp, Inc., now America's leader in sports coaching. Among CoachUp's roster of coaches and advisors are thousands of current and former professional athletes, including such top performers as two-time NBA MVP and champion Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and NFL world champion Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots. <p>The Coaching Up Model presented here is clear, concise, and straightforward—in fact, it's almost deceptively simple. Yet mastering it can make a profound difference in the quality and effectiveness of all your professional and personal relationships. When you read <i>Coaching Up!</i> and begin practicing these techniques in your daily interactions with colleagues, family members, and friends, you will immediately feel a difference in everyone's energy levels. You will be consistently building authentic connections, providing genuine support, and offering concise direction. And both you and the people you care about will be enjoying your interactions more and coming away from them full of renewed enthusiasm for the task at hand, whether small-scale or game-changing. The fact is that <i>coaching people up</i> along the lines described in this book feels <i>great—</i>both for the person being coached up and for the person doing the coaching. <p>Once you have mastered the techniques of the Coaching Up Model, you will find yourself using these techniques with increasing fluency in your everyday interactions. The more Coaching Up Conversations you have with people, the deeper your mutual trust grows and the smoother and simpler these conversations get. In fact, under some circumstances, you can have an entire Coaching Up Conversation with just a look or a gesture. To get to that point, all it takes is practice in mastering the model???s three basic skills: <ul> <li><b>Building authentic connections</b> through specific dialogue, body language, and talking points, always laced with humor and humility</li> <li><b>Providing genuine support</b> through conversations designed to boost confidence, shed light on individual progress and potential, and remove obstacles in people???s paths</li> <li><b>Giving clear, concise direction</b> that people recognize as truly helpful and in their own interest</li> </ul> <p><i>Coaching Up!</i> is a quick read with a huge payoff. As the author promises right up front, this book will change your life.
