Everyone Needs a Good Coach

John Wooden, the former head basketball coach at UCLA, won 10 NCAA championships over 12 years. This included winning an impressive seven years in a row. There are many famous quotes attributed to Coach Wooden, but my favorite is, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”

While students of all ages, including college athletes, are accustomed to listening and learning from coaches, what about the pros? Yes, it is true that even professional athletes have coaches including every professional team, as well as individual contributors such as golfers. Indeed, Tiger Woods has a golf coach.

Everyone needs a good coach, including Encompass System Administrators. In the words of Coach Wooden, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”  Many System Admins benefit from Ellie Mae onsite reviews such as the Annual Health Check.  Others may partner with Ellie Mae on staff augmentation projects or customer directed hours.  But one hidden gem that is available to Encompass System Administrators, is an Admin Enablement engagement. 

System Admins get a dedicated personal coach that can help them to magnify their strengths and maximize their unique skill sets through detailed knowledge-sharing sessions, including guidance and recommendations on Encompass improvements.

Ellie Mae Advisory Consulting can provide system admin coaching, mentoring, and over-the-shoulder assistance with business-as-usual activities, special projects, punch-list items, one-time initiatives, and more. For Encompass users with one or many system admins, Ellie Mae Advisory Consulting can help drive improvements in workflow effectiveness and efficiency through improved teamwork.
