THE COACH AND THE GEEK is a fictional story written for business leaders. This story follows the challenges of a college basketball coach who is about to lose his job. The team has talent, but the culture is trapped within a history of failure, negativity, and blame. Through fate, he meets a senior software manager (aka Coach Geek) who just got fired. Together, they develop an unlikely partnership and new approach that changes their team, their season, and their lives. Learn how to coach, connect with, gain buy-in, and build accountability in your team. Throughout the book, the authors share many actionable lessons from their lives as coaches and leaders.
REALITY BASED LEADERSHIP
So many people right now are convinced that their circumstances are the reasons they can’t be successful and content. Here is the reality.
Your circumstances are never the reasons you can’t succeed, they are simply the reality in which you must succeed. AND, you will always have extenuating circumstances that you can use as reasons, stories and excuses for lack of results and why your happiness is fleeting.
They may all be true and valid reasons. Unfortunately, they are still just reasons, stories and excuses.
With that being said, we know many of you out there are experiencing less than ideal circumstances right now and navigating situations you never envisioned you’d be in during your career.
This universal principle still remains true. These circumstances are simply your assignment and the place in which you can joyfully add value next.
Watch the video below for a technique you can use to never blame your circumstances again. Call yourself to greatness with Cy’s secret technique and use it to toggle your teams up as well.
Time to go succeed anyway. Together.
Professional Development & Evaluation
With our sports seasons fully underway, we will be moving to weekly one-on-one meetings for in-season coaches to assure that adequate support is provided for each program. As we are planning for next year, please provide feedback in terms of the best option to meet our goal of 8 total professional development hours.
- 1-hour meeting each month
- Quarterly 2-hour meetings
- 2 4-hour retreats
