Publisher's Summary

With more than 60 million athletes involved in sports in America, it is estimated that one coach will impact more people in one year than the average person does in a lifetime. Today's coach could be one of the greatest authoritative figures in the life of today's adolescent. So the question isn't whether coaches leave a legacy, but rather, what will that legacy be?

Current trending research shows that only 15 percent of coaches are intentional about coaching beyond the skills and strategies of the game (1st Dimension). A three-dimensional coach understands and harnesses the power of the coaching platform to coach the mind (2nd Dimension) and transform the heart (3rd Dimension). They can be the catalysts for internal transformation that guides both the coach and the athlete on a spiritual journey to finding purpose in our performance-based culture. Now that's a legacy!

National Coaches Training Director Jeff Duke shares his own journey through the three dimensions of coaching and how it has impacted his life and those around him. He also shares the personal stories of coaches from all levels who have implemented the 3D concept into their own programs and who have pointed to Jesus Christ, the master coach, as the ultimate example of how to lead athletes to true significance.

Leaders in all walks of life need this book!

I'm not a sports coach but coaching isn't limited to the athletic fields. As a business leader and father, I needed this book. I can't wait to implement the 3D philosophy in my personal and business arenas.

A gem in the weeds

This is honestly a really good short book that has just been extended a bit too long. For those coaches which are religious, this is a must read. For those who are not, this is a good case study to read and try to adapt into your style.

I just wish they would have trimmed some of the fat and got to the point. For me, it was filled with too much back story which took away from the REALLY GOOD topics of improving your coaching.

Even those without a faith-based model can learn and take away from this book. You just need to find the gems hidden in the weeds.
