I was having a think the other day on what constitutes the core of coaching.
You’re coaching competitive sport, have one session a week to work with your players and lots to teach them, how do you get the most out of what you do and how effective can you be?
If you had to list three things, what would they be?
What I got it down to is this:
Look for improvement
Practice the key skills, key techniques and enhance the key player attributes
I know some coaches have a couple of sessions or more a week to work with their players, and they can expand on what they do, but in reality most do not.
Since we all live busy lives, we have to get the most out of what we do.
Find the core, you find the key
