A great coach thinks more about others than of oneself.
One of the greatest gifts anyone can give is a useful skill. Most of us know how to do something not everyone can do as well as we can. Transferring that knowledge and the ability to use it can empower others in amazing ways.

What makes a good coach? Complete dedication.
My responsibility is leadership, and the minute I get negative, that is going to have an influence on my team.
You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward. But both those methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self motivation.
I learn teaching from teachers. I learn golf from golfers. I learn winning from coaches.
Coaching is a profession of love. You can't coach people unless you love them.
Coaches have to watch for what they don't want to see and listen to what they don't want to hear.
Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control.
Make sure that team members know they are working with you, not for you.
Coaching is 90% attitude and 10% technique.
A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.
The test of a good coach is that when they leave, others will carry on successfully.
