Foundational beliefs – guiding lights

The following are foundational beliefs that make up the pillars of my coaching philosophy. Early in my career as a coach I learned that philosophy is the guiding light, the beacon that guides you through the good times and the bad. These may be of assistance to you in defining how and what you do as a coach:

  • Coach & teach the way you would want to be coached & taught
  • It is always about the athlete
  • Focus on the process – the pursuit of excellence has its own rewards
  • Embrace and lead change
  • Relentlessly pursue personal & professional growth and learning
  • Use all dimensions of communication
  • Embrace the difference – nobody is the same
  • Always ask why?
  • Never take no for answer
  • Less is more – simplicity yields complexity
  • Be passionate and enthusiastic
  • Be humble
