It is so true that coaches not only have to pay attention to the information that they are delivering, but also to how they are delivering that message. This is particularly important when coaching young athletes. Energy is a key factor with this particular audience.

Excellent summary of what coaches can do to engage those participating in their sessions (and keep them coming back for more) ... I like to think I do most of those, most of the time ???

Hi Nick,
would you care to comment on or do a separate blog on the more subtle types of coaches that tick all your boxes on energy. So they talk and walk a good game but actually, in substance, at higher levels, they have often been promoted by the Peter Principle and so there isn’t any relevance anymore. What are the hallmarks of spotting those (sometimes called blaggers) coaches that look good but deep down are out of their depth? They get by, by having great sense of humour and are very disengaging and charming or have high levels of enthusiasm or are carried by past success and despite ticking those boxes trade off that ability, to mask the lack of substance underneath?

You are the message. Energetic coaches have energetic sessions. I personally have noted that a small warm up session of weights before coaching greatly improves content delivery. This is in conjunction with the all stated emphasis on paralanguage and non verbal cues. The vocal tone, timbre, pitch, tempo , emphasis and volume play a huge role in creating energy. Coaching in some respects is a performance where the coach decides what tone to set. The non verbal facial cues, gestures, posture, proxemics and eye movements further augment the display of energy. With experience and practice coaches can develop the ability to create many different coaching environments by the use of non verbal communication. While the research of Albert Abhrabian and michael Argyle put large percentages on the impact of nvc, what we do know is that it plays a large role in communications. Consequently, being aware and practicing the nvc of the energetic coach might be helpful. How would you coach fellow coaches to be energetic?
