Building a Winning Culture with your Coaching Staff

"Make sure that not only is there a shared sense of mission, but make sure that it aligns well with the specific role that you envision them filling."

In episode five of the Directors Club with Mike Bonelli, Mike and his guests discuss ways to recruit great coaches and retain them while building a sustainable, positive, winning culture to organizations.

As we come to the end of one season, directors and administrators must now start the process of preparing for the next one. That includes finding and keeping qualified coaches in the fold, while training and collaborating with them in order to build a successful culture.

Mike is joined by Paul Esdale, Director of Hockey Operations for Community First Igloo in Jacksonville, Florida, and Aaron Wilbur, Founder of The Coaches Site, as the three share their perspectives on what qualities they look for in a great coach.

“Make sure that not only is there a shared sense of mission, but make sure it aligns well with the specific role you envision them filling.”
