Summary

Learn the secrets for becoming the inspirational coach for whom everyone is waiting.

Think about the coaches you’ve had throughout your life. Most likely, some were good, others not so good. Maybe one or two were great. One thing is undeniable: Coaches can influence your life in ways that can be negative or positive. A coach can either build you up or tear you down. The world needs better coaches in all walks of life - if you’re a parent, a teacher, a coworker, or a leader, you are also a coach. Which kind of coach do you want to be? Coach to Coach helps you answer this question and shares the secrets to bringing out the best in a person, both on and off the field.

For more than 20 years, author Martin Rooney has coached professional sport stars, Olympic champions, and business leaders to high levels of performance, analyzing thousands of real-life examples of what works and what doesn’t. Coming across like a simple parable, this engaging audiobook gives you an easy-to-use yet highly effective formula for becoming a better coach for your teams, in your business, and in your personal life. Packed with valuable insights and expert advice, this appealing audiobook helps you:

  • Learn how to be a great leader by being a great coach
  • Create positive lives for your children and the people with whom you work 
  • Inspire and motivate the people around you
  • Turn your natural skills and talents into your own unique coaching style
  • Use proven, time-tested coaching strategies to get results

Coach to Coach: An Empowering Story About How to Be a Great Leader is an ideal audiobook for coaches, leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, educators, parents, and anyone wanting to bring out the best in those around them.

Outstanding...

This is the first time I have listened to a book in one sitting.

I am normally put off when an author does not narrate himself but Brian does a fantastic job in telling the story.

There are so many gems in here and you can apply them to all aspects of life.

Motivational and uplifting.

Wow

The storytelling in this book was relatable and made me a bit emotional at times.

I am looking to become a coach, and have been feeling a lot of doubt. But this is helping me see I am actually capable of being a great coach.

Perhaps... “the best coach in the world.”

The most important job in the world

Parable books come and go, especially when it comes to books about leadership. This book somehow balances the art of telling stories and converting lessons, and I am sure that it will be one that stands tall for many years to come. I plan on returning to this book many times. It’s simple and short, but don’t be disillusioned into thinking that it isn’t powerful.
