Some more thoughts on the coaching process:
- No algorithm, no formula – High degree of emotional intelligence & flexibility
- Grounded in pedagogy – A coach is a teacher first
- Driven by clearly defined core beliefs – Core beliefs are actions not just words
- Lifelong learner – Seeking answers by asking better questions
- The coach is a communicator – that means listening as well as talking
- Life/sport balance for the coach and athlete – We coach people who compete in sport. We have lives also.
