The Irishman says he enjoys being a mentor and support for his young teammates.
He told the Sunday World: “I like being a captain and, in that role, there are times when you take young players aside and give them some guidance.
“That's our job as older players. Not to tell them how to run their lives, but just to give them a little bit of a steer – what they need to do to stay focused on, and that has to be their jobs and their families.
“If I can do anything with the Everton or Ireland lads to keep them grounded and give them a little bit of advice here and there, I will always try to do it."
Coleman also says: “My attitude then is the same as it is now – try to be better today than I was yesterday.
“It's a pretty simple ambition, but it has always served me well throughout my career."
