How do you Coach the Next Generation of Leaders?

“You may be good. You may even be better than everyone else. But without a coach you will never be as good as you could be.” – Andy Stanley

 
 
 
Andy Stanley is the founding Pastor at North Point Church north of Atlanta, GA.
 
He speaks at national leadership Conferences to equip those who coach leaders, especially those working with Millennials.
 
 Here are his 5 concepts for next generation leaders shared at Catalyst:
 
1. Competence
 
Leaders must channel their energies toward those arenas of leadership in which they are most likely to excel.
 
2. Courage
 
The leader of an enterprise isn’t always the smartest or most creative person on the team. He isn’t necessarily the first to identify an opportunity. the leader is the one who has the courage to initiate, to set things in motion, to move ahead.
 
3. Clarity
 
Uncertain times require clear directives from those in leadership. Yet the temptation for young leaders is to allow uncertainty to leave them paralyzed. A next generation leader must learn to be clear even when he is not certain.
 
4. Coaching
 
You may be good. You may even be better than everyone else. But without a coach you will never be as good as you could be.
 
5. Character
 
You can lead without character, but you won’t be a leader worth following. Character provides next generation leaders with the moral authority necessary to bring together the people and resources needed to further and enterprise.
