“What a really good coach does is create a space for the player - the leader - to understand all the dynamics and make the right decision.”

Founder of Nick Kennedy Coaching and author of The Good Entrepreneur, Nick joined us to discuss coaching and leadership in this digital age of AI.

Great coaches don’t always have the answers, but they bring out the best in their pupils.

“My job is to ask questions, to get the answers inside of them out into the open and remove the chaos that’s going on between the ears.”

And what’s a universal habit for the best of the best in coaching?

“A lot of listening,” Nick said. “I’m a professional listener at the end of the day, but I listen and reflect back.”
