Following up with episode #2, “The Art of Coaching Physique Athletes”, Andrea, Brad and Jeff explore this topic once again, but this time, from a slightly different angle.
In this week’s episode, the group focuses it’s attention on not so much what needs to be said, but more so on HOW it should be said. Countless variables including: gender, age, culture, maturity level and experience level need to be considered when determining how to best communicate a message to your athlete.
The group dives into numerous conversations regarding the importance of knowing your athletes enough, to know when the appropriate time is to deliver information to them, the importance being a good listener has on being a great coach, and the irreplaceable benefits that real-world experiences provide to the making of a great coach.
This episode is wrapped up with a final conversation about book smarts versus practical experience. The group comes to a mutual agreement that book smarts are valuable and extremely important, however it’s what you do after you’ve obtained this knowledge, that ultimately determines your success as a coach.
