“Leadership that pulls together people with diverse talents, backgrounds, experiences and interests, encourages them to step up to responsibility and continued achievement, and treats them as full scale partners and contributors.

Leadership is not about memorising techniques or devising the perfect game plan. It is about really paying attention to people – really believing them, really caring about them, really involving them.”

(Peters & Austin, 1985)

Leadership as Empowerment

Current ideas on leadership involve empowering followers to self-lead.

This is important in a coach-leadership role as empowering athletes enables them to make their own decisions and self-lead during performance.

“The best leaders - people do not even notice their existence.

The next best - people honour and praise.

The next the people fear.

The next the people hate.

When the best leader’s work is done the people say ‘we did it ourselves’.”

(Lao-Tzu in Morris, Willcocks and Knasel, 2000)
