Be a Coach First, Boss Second

The most important thing you can do for your team is to help them find meaning in their work. That means sitting down with each member one on one and finding out what matters to him or her.

When I think of a coach, I think of a role model saying,

“You can do it!”

“I believe in you.”

These are things a coach tells his or her players. Be a coach first, and a boss second.

-Teach by example.

-Lead the way for your team to follow.

-Be uplifting.
