We’ve all seen a Master Coach in action, and one of the biggest hallmarks to a Master Coach is that it doesn’t appear like they are doing much, not on the surface at least.
For though a Master Coach can give the appearance of not much happening, realistically, they are being much smarter than that, for a lot of their work is done behind the scenes, and even their own players and athletes won’t really see them at work.
For there are at least 3 aspects to the work of a Master Coach, with them being:
Creates a Learning Environment
Activates the Desire to Learn
Works from the Core Skills, Techniques & Tactics
Understand Words & Language
Understand People and their behaviours
And one of the biggest things that a Master Coach has is a huge bank of Knowledge which they have built up over many years.
That doesn’t mean that someone who has coached for a long, long time automatically becomes a Master Coach, because you can still have a lot of knowledge and still be inefficient in what one does.
To move onto the path of becoming a Master Coach revolves around the type of attitude, philosophy and mindset that one has and putting in time in coming to understanding of whatever they are doing.
For you can tell someone who is on the path to becoming a Master Coach is that you can copy exactly what they are doing, but you still don’t get the same results, because you are missing the understanding that they have.
And don’t go and watch a Master Coach and expect to see a lot happening, you’ll always come away disappointed.
