IT'S going to fill a void in the GAA with its unique take on team management. That was the description given by GAA President Christy Cooney at the launch of Tim Healy’s new book ‘Can You Manage?’.

The new publication is a blueprint for managers or aspiring managers seeking clearly-defined methods in how to look after a football, hurling or club team across a variety of sports.

Launching the book in Croke Park, the President said he felt it would have relevance to teams within and beyond the GAA code.

While there has been a plethora of GAA books on coaching, Can You Manage? blazes a trail by focusing the spotlight on the various aspects of management.

From psychological contracts to team communication, from motivation to tactics, the author painstakingly points out the potential and pitfalls of decisions you make as a manager.
