In truth, this site has been a long time coming. It has been an idea in my mind for a few years now but various stops and starts never fully allowed me to get it going. That has now changed and I am thrilled to share it with anyone interested in learning more.
This whole idea stemmed from the fact that I was always looking for ways to improve myself as a coach, leader, and overall human being. I would spend hours searching for how (insert coach name) did (insert coaching idea) or how such and such managed their staff, or any of the thousands of acts that go into coaching and leadership. While there is no shortage of this information if you search hard enough, I realized along the way that it would be fantastic to have a resource I could go back to time and again to learn new (or old) information about various aspects of coaching and leadership. Thus, my desire to create a place where the sole focus would be on helping people become more well-rounded coaches, leaders and hopefully human beings.
Enter, Coach In Full.
I hope to use this site as a way to share information with not only my peers who are going on a similar journey as myself, but with anyone interested in possibly becoming a more well-rounded individual. I believe that with a little desire and ambition we all have the ability to self-educate and in doing so will continue to improve ourselves over time.
So what exactly will this site be? Well even of that I am not completely sure yet. But I do know that it will be full of information that as either helped me or I feel could potentially help someone as they strive to improve their coaching and/or leadership. I will lean on people who have done much more of this than I have and can hopefully share their knowledge with Coach In Full being the platform. I also want this to be collaborative. I will always be open to suggestions and ideas about what could make this site even more useful, informative or generally better. I have many of my own ideas as to how Coach In Full will progress but am eager to hear different thoughts as well.
Initially the site will be broken down into various sections.
Articles: We will share any article or interview we come across that we found interesting, useful or valuable. Most will likely be surrounding the coaching profession directly, but I wouldn't be surprised if other topics start to show up.
Blog: We want our blog to consist of thoughtful pieces that will provide you with value. Some will be more based on personal opinions and experience, while others may be more sharing of information from other sources. Trust me, I know we don't have all the answers, we just want to start a conversation on a variety of topics.
Interviews/Podcast: As we grow we have plans for this to develop, we will keep you posted as to when this will happen.
Book Reviews: We are avid readers and here we will share reviews of books we've been reading lately. Please feel free to share any recommendations with us as well.
More than anything though this site comes out of a passion to learn and a desire to get better. I sincerely hope that each of you reading the content here are able to take away even one tiny piece of information that helps you improve. Ultimately, when each of us get better, the people we coach get better and that's really what it's all about.
