'My biggest eye-opener as a coach'

David Forster shares how carefully training your team can produce successful, even perfect results. David is head of the Global Institute of Coaching at Thunderbird School of Global Management, a unit of the ASU Knowledge Enterprise.



Lessons I learned from coaching my sled dogs

1. Pulling together

Do you discourage your team from doing what you want them to do?


2. Pulling alongside

If you don't walk next to your team, they don't understand the goal.


3. Pulling back

Team successes allow them to move forward with confidence.


"How can they have trust and confidence to walk down a path you’re asking them to walk down if you’re not willing to walk down it with them?" - David Forster
