What better way to begin a new year than with the inspiration of a leadership coach? That is how we are choosing to help you ring in 2011: with the help of “the master motivator,” Coach Micheal Burt. A former championship girls basketball coach, Burt has applied the skills of a winning sports team to helping corporate clients develop practical approaches to winning.
In the January 2011 issue of Leadership Guide Magazine , we present an interview with Coach Burt. “My best definition of leadership is to find your unique gift in life, develop that gift, and then help other people find theirs,” he says. “This almost always happens through affirming and validating the worth and potential in people in such a clear and consistent way that they begin to see it in themselves. .
The second article highlights some of the start-the-year-right wisdom of his book This Ain’t No Practice Life . “You cannot meet new challenges with old ways of thinking,” he says. “The question becomes, ‘how do you expand your imagination to go beyond the limitations in your mind?’ ” In this article, we detail Coach Burt’s door-opening-keys: the Seven Decisions.
We hope you enjoy the articles and find them helpful in your leadership efforts.
