Yesterday I was watching a basketball game on the tv and I was trying to identify the behaviours the the coaches had. In my opinion head coaches are a very good example of leaders and their behaviour is worth mentioning.
The most important thing in order to be a good coach-leader, is to have the ability to identify how to change your behaviour in different situations (ex. Score difference) to achieve the wanted results. It was amazing how they were changing behaviour during the game, when the team was performing well they were encouraging and motivating by saying well done etc. But also they the team was doing mistakes they were yelling at them and they were seeming very nervous.
This made me realize that a good leader can change behaviours and the way he treats his/her team. The team will expect these changes and they will know how to react. It is important for the team’s performance to be able to understand what the change in the behaviour means.
