Want to get great at something? Get a coach!

by | Dec 19, 2017

How do we improve in the face of complexity? Atul Gawande has studied this question with a surgeon’s precision. He shares what he’s found to be the key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instill positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again. “It’s not how good you are now; it’s how good you’re going to be that really matters,” Gawande says.

Thank you Ujjaval Buch for sending this talk to share with the Coacharya community!

Atul Gawande is a surgeon and public health professor by day, writer by night. He explores how doctors can dramatically improve their practice using approaches as simple as a checklist – or coaching.
