Using Positive Coaching In The Corporate Business World

Share This Resource

Chris Dahlander, winner of a 2017 Double-Goal Coach® Award Presented by TeamSnap, coaches baseball for Town North YMCA (@YMCADallas). Like many coaches, Dahlander entered coaching intent on offering youth a more positive sports experience than the one he had as a child. That lends to greater perspective on the different ways that sports cam impact youth. Dahlander is also the Founder & CEO of Snappy Salads (@SnappySalads), an award-winning Dallas/Ft. Worth-area restaurant, and has a particular interest in corporate leadership, mentorship, and championing people.

In this clip, Dahlander translates the effects of positive coaching from the sports world to his business world. As a CEO, he strives to provide employees with the same 5:1 ratio of truthful, specific praise to each specific, constructive criticism as he provides the youth athletes he coaches.
