team_cultureWhy we recommend it:  Bringing together a group of people to forge a high performing team culture is no simple exercise. It doesn’t happen by itself, nor is it a ‘matter of time’. Master coaches understand the intricacies, focus and persistence it takes. Be confident in managing your team’s unique culture, with practical coaching strategies to keep your team on the right track. It can be difficult to find a resource that can effectively guide your team through the potential pitfalls of culture. But this eBook is designed to take you step by step through the four distinct types of culture, and how to coach for these cultures.

Book Overview:  “Developing a winning culture is not a rite of passage. It is a process requiring deliberate planning, careful execution and steadfast focus.” Culture is a buzz word in sport. Coaches often attribute their success or failure on this ambiguous word. Every team has a culture and even if you do not know what yours is, one exists. The real question is, what impact is it having on your team right now? It is critical for coaches to understand what drives cultural behaviors, how to evaluate their own culture and then how to guide it to be what the team needs. Developing a high-performance culture need not be an overwhelming initiative. This eBook discusses what effects your team’s culture, how to analyze your team’s culture, the four different DISC team cultures, and their individual characteristics, values. Most valuable for coaches, this eBook discusses how different athletes will feel in each culture, and how to tailor your coaching for the unique culture of your team.
