Description

This book describes the beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes of great athletic coaches. Where do they focus their attention? How do they spend their time and energy? And how can others gain the same advantages? Here, Rob Haworth and Todd Whitaker describe the qualities of champion athletes, coaches, and parents. Applying and extending the concepts presented in Whitaker's What Great Teachers Do Differently and What Great Principals Do Differently, this book demonstrates how effective coaching calls for "people skills" that the best coaches practice every day. Perfect for the coaches of your favorite school sports teams! "Plenty of real sports examples! The authors present a positive approach to understanding what great coaches do differently." -- Gene Shelkett, Principal, Eisenhower High School, Lawton, OK
