Good Leaders Motivate

Posted in Leadership by Dr. Byron L. Ernest on March 23, 2010

Yesterday I had the priviledge to reflect one more time on the Coach and Be Coached seminar put on by The Kevin Eikenberry Group I did this reflection with Kevin, Jenny, and Guy of the Kevin Eikenberry Group.

During our call Jenny brought up a great point that we should strive to be the athletic coach that we still remember affectionately as “Coach.” Part of the reason we have that attachment is because of the relationship we have formed.

This morning in my devotional time this was driven home to me in the words of John Maxwell (someone I consider a coach even though I have never personally met him – but want to) when he said, “If you become a major nurturer in the life of another person, then you have an opportunity to make a major impact on them” Maxwell, 2003).
