A coach I represented who is now retired had a process he always followed whenever he was faced with making a major career decision. Over the years he had assembled a handful of advisors who he would call to discuss each particular situation as it came up. This group was the coach’s “inner circle.” It was made up of individuals who the coach had come to trust and respect – I was honored to be included. President Obama has cabinet members and advisors, and corporate executives have boards of directors. In the same vein, I think it’s wise for a coach to have an “inner circle” that he can go to for advice. But be careful in putting that group together. Proverbs 13:20 says “the one who walks with the wise will become wise, but a companion of fools will suffer harm”.

FYI head coaches – these same questions can be asked when putting together your staff!
