Running Head: Unit 9 Assignment 1 Unit 9 Assignment 1: Leadership Coaching Role Jerry Guzman ITT
Running Head: Unit 9 Assignment 1 A Leader and Coach are 2 distinct roles behind a good team. Leadership means a direct involvement; he/she has to be a performer. Leader must be capable of directing and decision-making. A Leader must also be a good coach. He must be able to lead by example and demonstrate his lead by dominating in some way. But a Leader’s role in coaching may be limited, as he can be a coach only up to his skill or expertise levels. Besides, a Leader has his hands full working on the strategy and tactical aspects. A good Leader must be good at or know about most of the things he expects of his team. A Coach – the role implies a guiding and demonstrative approach. A coach studies the team members, to identify their strengths and weaknesses and help them improve. A coach must have some expertise and experience to deliver the knowledge. Team coaching helps people understand how to work better with others. It's an effective method for showing teams how to reduce conflict and improve their working relationships. Then the team can focus on its real work, and achieve its objectives .
