Here's a football article explaining an important football coaching tip that will result in an improved coaching record.

How To Increase Your Coaching
"How can I become a better and more effective coach?" We hear this question frequently and there's obviously more than one answer. Today, let's explore one football coaching tip that will lead to you being a better coach.
Record By At Least 25%
You need to identify one or two players on your team you think can develop into leaders. You see, the everyday coach just has a bunch of followers while a winning coach takes the time to develop leaders that in turn aid the coach in leading the team to a winning tradition.
In his book, "Developing the Leaders Around You", John
Maxwell says, "The greatest leadership principle that I
have learned...is that those closest to the leader will
determine the success level of that leader. ...the people
closest to me 'make me or break me'. ...My goal is not to
draw a following that results in a crowd. My goal is to
develop leaders who become a movement."
Isn't that what you want as the coach of your team? A couple of players that can help you create a "movement" of winning attitudes, winning work ethics - a winning synergy.
By the way, we discuss ideas on developing 'team synergy' in our Special Report, "5 Keys to Discovering the Successful Coach Inside You". You can get it FREE by subscribing to our newsletter.
Think about this for a minute. How far do you think Phil Jackson would have gone without the leadership roles filled by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Shaq and Kobe? How about how the leadership of the "Triplets" helped Jimmy Johnson with the Dallas Cowboys?
How much do you think Brian Billick appreciated the leadership of Ray Lewis in 2000 when the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl? Do you think Gregg Popovich would be as successful without Tim Duncan & Manu Ginobili providing further leadership roles?
By empowering one or two of your players to stand up and become leaders, you create a powerful extension of yourself. Now, these leaders free you up in certain situations where leadership is needed.
If some players are "doggin' it", sometimes a "push" from a "player leader" is more effective than when it comes from you. There are some cases where only your leadership can make the difference. But there are others where the leaders you develop can step in and provide the needed words or action.
The end result of surrounding yourself with a couple of quality leaders is it makes you a more effective coach and leader. Which is exactly what you're looking for, isn't it?
