This study was conducted to evaluate the relevance of business practices, specifically transformational leadership and self-guided teams, to soccer coaching. Current research focuses on lessons from athletics than can be applied to business; however applying business practices to coaching is a point of view that has been largely neglected. Soccer, like in business, relies heavily on teams and effective leadership. As a result, coaches must develop player's decision making skills in training. The findings indicate that there is much that can be learned from business that could largely benefit coaches, specifically in leadership, team development, organization, and training environments.
