Two days ago I wrote about the nutshell of coaching and today I’m going to add some words you can associate with each category.
To recap the 8 areas are:
1st Step to Take
The Real Challenge
And the words to associate with each are:
Understand Sport – Competitive/Change
Social Engineering – Guiding
Leadership – Vision
People Management – Engagement
Sporting Knowledge – Specific
Developing Talent – Improvement
1st Step to take – Buy In
The Real Challenge – Progression
So each of the 8 categories targets a certain areas so when it comes to coaching you are looking to:
Be competitive and create change in your players which means you must get engagement in the process by getting buy in at the start.
As a coach you will have a vision or picture of how the game is to be played so you must be able to guide your players in that direction whilst you focus and target specific areas and skills of your sport, which you will be looking to get improvement and continuous progression in.
Competitive, Change, Engagement, Buy In, Vision, Guide, Specific, Improvement, Progression – The words of the coaching process
