A very interesting read and some great advice for coaches moving into a new situation. I've seen lots of coaches, right up to performance level, rush in and make decisions not very well considered, coming from a desperately keen place of wanting to prove their worth and why they have been brought in.

Good article, I would shy away from using "why" though - it's quite aggressive and instantly puts people on the defensive, exchange for "what outcome are you hoping to achieve by doing it that way", or "what's the purpose of that method" etc - it just gives the person more reason to explain than get defensive from the off

I have to disagree with this - asking why is a really simple approach but it is how you frame the question: the words you use and the intent with which you are asking why. It may be that the player you are coaching doesn't understand what an 'outcome' is or what the 'purpose of their method' was - they "just did it like that", or they "were told to do it like that" - keep language simple, I say!

Great article Krissi! As a newbie coach I can relate to quite a lot of the above.

Interesting article. The only thing I would say is that if you are an experienced coach and a newbie "whirlwind" coach comes in with lots of ideas and things they want to try out please don't assume that they think that the way you currently do things is wrong or poor practice or have a low opinion of you. The opposite is probably true. It may just be that they are really enthusiastic and because everything is new they are thinking about coaching a lot, they are exposed to different ideas and clubs from their training courses and shadowing other coaches. Or maybe they are trying to impress someone that they look up to - you! So, why not choose to look at it as a positive thing and try to encourage them or help them to learn why the latest crazy idea might not be the best way forward. Just keep encouraging the ideas - the next crazy one might work! :-)

18 months into a Association Coaching Coordinator position and I am still struggling to find the right balance. Many days I want to throw my hands up and walk away but it is the players that keep me going and remind me of why I get so passionate about coaching.
