Thanks for this, John

Self-review isn't easy, but it is the essential complement to personal and professional development. The framework certainly helps.

Two observations
1. I think the "simple" advice to "use Foucault's confessional practice" probably needs translation to every-day coaching practice - the over-confident will need help to see their own sins, whilst the self-critical might see so many flaws that they undermine what little confidence they started out with...
2. Shouldn't we be striving to become "better" coaches (i.e. continuously improving), not just "good" (perfected)?

Thx for the share John Mcilroy.

"Good" Coach is too subjective a label, although you hear it used all the time, by players, parents, Club Officials, and coaches at large. What is 'good' today may be out of date in next to no time at all; unless the good coach being spot-lighted is continually becoming 'better', as Andrew Bevan alludes to in his Reply. Wonder if EHB Coach Development ever saw this research?
