The Power of a Great Coach [Podcast]

October 20, 2014 | By | 6 Comments">6 Comments

This is a special episode of the Chris LoCurto Show.
We are live at Barber Motor Sports Park in Birmingham, AL. (You may hear the cars and announcers in the background.)

We decided to take a break from the office where we have been working on something special for ya! More on that next week.

But in this episode we have a special guest on the show – my racing coach Duane Neyer.
This guy took me from average to grabbing the track record! Did I mention I got the track record? :-)

I learned early on in my career that if I’m the smartest person in the room…I’m in the wrong room.
I need to be in the room with people much smarter and faster than me and that’s why I have coaches.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Tips on becoming a better coach
  • Why coaching is so important
  • The importance of finding your baseline in racing and business
  • Knowing when to take baby steps
  • How to get to success
  • Why all coaches are not created equal
  • Who the worst clients are
  • And if winning is everything

Question: How have you been influenced by a great coach?

    Great job Chris! Just read yesterday that a key to being smart and successful is to always have a student mindset.
    Always wishing you well in your races, just remember to turn off your left blinker. :)

    I love this episode because you two shared from your areas of expertise what it takes to be an effective coach: knowledge and skill. You are going to take your clients to their best performance by providing technical guidance and specific behaviors they need to succeed. I can get on the soap box pretty quickly, but I have a problem with people advertising themselves as “experts” or “coaches” when they don’t have the track record (pun intended) to back them up.

    Chris! As a coach, can I use this for potential clients?

  • Ken Trupke

    Great coaches are also coachable. Excellent interview, Chris!

    P.S. And sweet pic of the CLoTribe’s fav driver getting ready to crush it on the track!
