If you thought you could get away with directing and telling your players what to do; berating your player or relying on your technical knowledge as a coach, then think again.  What makes a great coach? unlocks the secrets of what over 500 players and coaches say makes a great coach and gives us the answer in a way that is practical and relatable.


Featuring stories and inspiration from past and current player and coaching legends, including many former World No. 1’s, What makes a great coach? provides the much needed authentic guide to becoming a better coach.


Whether you are a professional coach or just starting out; a parent or guardian; a human resource professional or business executive, What makes a great coach? is the book that we need right now to bring out the best, not only in our players or team members, but also ourselves.

Thank you for visiting the home page for my first book called 'What Makes a Great Coach?' (#WMAGC). Sometimes I have to pinch myself because I feel like I'm just an ordinary person living the most extraordinary life, thanks to being a coach. Coaching is my passion and something that I feel I was born to do. In the book, WMAGC, we share the qualities from over 500 inspirational players and coaches to help you unlock your coaching potential. You can learn more about my journey here:
