Hence what everyone needs to know is that all coaching is trial and error, and it doesn’t matter how scientific one becomes, at it’s heart is all trial and error, for some of the greatest discoveries of our time have come about by accident.
6 Accidental Discoveries You’ve Probably Never Heard Of
The way that one can help to minimize the amount of trial and error, is to develop an aim and a picture of what one is wanting to achieve, for the aim and the picture act as a guide for what one is doing, hence guides one’s experiments and research.
And without a base, one can’t create a solid foundation to work from, and without growth one can not keep getting better, and at the heart of all this improvement as a coach is in understanding people.
And it helps for the players to have a quick understanding of the type of culture that one is building and as a coach to reinforce throughout the year, that is consistent with what one said at the beginning.
