Coaching is teaching
Ultimately a coach is a teacher. Teaching is communicating and communication is the key to effective coaching.
Communication has the dimensions of sending and receiving. Coaches, by nature, tend to be good at sending and not always as good at receiving. To be effective we must cultivate both dimensions of communication. Learn to listen as well as speak. Sometimes it is as simple as being there to support the athlete; words are not always the answer.
