Lehmann won’t stay: to step down after South Africa series
‘Lehmann as Coach’, says the image (PC @EconomicTimes)
– He was not being a coach, a mere leader/trainer/tactician?
– A coach is bound by the rules, values, and ethics, in letter & spirit.
– A coach is more focused on the process and does not suffer from performance pressure. Coaching is a holistic, ‘… a creative process that inspires the coachees to maximize their potential, personal & professional’ (@ICFHQ definition of Coaching). The personal potential is ahead of professional potential, as it is first about the person at the core, then what s/he is at work/elsewhere.
Smith, Warner, Lehmann… are all mere metaphors.
What is in our collective conscious that these are happening around us: in cricket, (a gentleman’s game!)/sports, corporate, politics, or even family. Leadership in crisis?
We train/mentor aspiring coaches. We also coach leaders.
