    Our meeting mantra was “If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan, not the goal” and we really needed an organizational leader who could kick off our meeting and so we turned to Marcel. In developing the meeting agenda with Marcel prior to the meeting it became very obvious that the similarities between sports and the business world are quite remarkable. The preparation put forth by Marcel getting abreast of our industry prior to the meeting was like no other speaker I’ve seen and his efforts paid huge dividends for his credibility as well as to our organization.

    The message of developing your plan, evaluating your plan, adjusting your plan, re-evaluating your plan, making further adjustments, understanding that your plan is a “living & breathing” document came out crystal clear during our meeting and the goal is to win. There is no question that selecting Marcel as our keynote speaker for this meeting was the right decision and yes we are winning. We are adjusting, evaluating and re-evaluating constantly and we will win the 2015 game for sure!

    The effort, his credibility, his experiences, the message and Marcel’s leadership qualities made our meeting an astounding success. It was “excellence in execution!”

    I invited my sales team to join me during the “Pro Chat Business and Sports Breakfast” Marcel was presenting at. Marcel shared valuable insights in terms of what ingredients, processes, and activities can help you make a difference regardless of what arena your team competes within. Marcel shared hard facts based on an equitable balance between education and experience, was enthusiastic in his delivery, demonstrated strong leadership qualities, was a voice of clarity and showcased a positive demeanor which can only help any team develop the proper mind set and focus to overcome any challenges and do so with a clear roadmap based upon defined expectations.

5 Simple Steps to Effective Coaching – Getting Results

Getting Results Don’t get me wrong, evaluation processes are extremely important and an excellent tool, especially in sport. But what does an ENFP or ESFP have to do with productivity?

5 Simple Steps to Effective Coaching – Sports vs Business

Sports vs Business Coaching I have worked as a collegiate and professional football coach for over 20 years. Throughout that time I have also had the opportunity to work as an executive coach and consultant. The business and sport fields are very similar as they imply key coaching components. Evaluations, training, performance appraisals and team building are just some of the crossovers that are prominent in both arenas. There are some significant differences that do apply.
