No matter what you do, you’re a leader and you’re a coach. The two are inseparable from each other. Leading without coaching is malpractice. It’s short-sighted, unsustainable and selfish. On the other hand, “leading like a coach” is when you enable, not mandate. You inspire, not intimidate. You expand, not constrict. You make people happy, not miserable – including yourself.

Testimonials

"Just a quick note to say thanks again for the outstanding and inspirational messages you provided our Team yesterday. After you left, many people came and thanked me for bringing you in to speak to us - both first and second timers. You will be gratified to know that several people that saw, and enjoyed, your presentation last year, stated that they thought you were even better this year, and that they took away more value and insight on how to become the growth generator we are counting on them to be."

Russell Bandy, GE Infrastructure, Security, Director Of Business Development - Corporate Initiatives

Just a quick note to thank you for a fantastic presentation at our 2010 Customer Development Summit. I couldn’t think of a better way to send everyone home from this week that was ham-packed with training, sharing ideas and fostering a team commitment to growth- both personal and for the company.

The entire group was motivated and energized by your insight, wit and inspiration to bring out our best in everything we do. And your messages fit so well with our corporate direction which asked individuals to be bold and passionate, and to 'act as if this were their company, because it is'.

Maureen Hart, Corporate Affairs, Nestlé Canada Inc.

"The best decision I made was to say no to 3 other speakers before your name was presented. You were the right guy. I very much appreciate your strong contribution to the success of the conference. Your input, flexibility, ability to rise to the occasion, honesty, energy, humour - both as a giver and receiver -Ron`s imitation and your ability to laugh about it went over very well, and key messages all hit the right notes.

Henry Donkers, Regional Market Leader, BMO

"The campus is still buzzing from last night's dinner. I cannot thank you enough for your contribution to the event. You really blew everyone away. The most consistent comment has been... 'the best speaker I've ever seen!'"

Joe Danis, Director, Housing & Student Life, University of Manitoba

"I've never seen (our delegates) give anyone a standing ovation until they gave one to you! Your energy, your humor and your pearls of wisdom were all so valued. You left us feeling better for having interacted with you. Very generous, gracious and motivating!"

Brad Taylor , Human Resource Director, General Mills
