14-Qualities-Master-Coach

I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with, learn from and talk shop with countless Hall-of-Fame coaches over my career. From dinners with Bobby Knight & Hubie Brown to watching Coach K & John Calipari run practice to private meetings with Kevin Eastman & George Raveling to speaking alongside Don Showalter and Tates Locke to working for Mike Jones & Stu Vetter – I’ve been able to closely observe the qualities of a master coach.

Here are 14 qualities of a master coach:

  1. A master coach has a purposeful mission.
  1. A master coach is a big thinker.
  1. A master coach has high character.
  1. A master coach embraces change.
  1. A master coach has empathy.
  1. A master coach takes calculated risks.
