Notes and Quotes

Coaches can often get caught in the cycle of following the lead. Becoming a better coach and getting the most from your career requires you to think independently, develop your own plan, and often doing what you hate. Bartholomew shares his thoughts on how you can progress as a coach in a variety of ways.
