I am reading Good Ideas – How to Be Your Child’s (and Your Own) Best Teacher by the excellent Michael Rosen and one of his many wonderful analogies covers the different view you get of life from the top of a double decker bus, travelling down streets and areas that you know well and see most weeks. However, from this different vantage point, you see very things very differently and, as Rosen points out, can be a great source of new questions, perspectives and insight into things you think you know so well (I have found the same thing when looking at our house from our neighbours' back garden...give it a try!)
After reading Blake Richardson's recent post around embracing technology , it started me thinking and reflecting more about how useful it is to gain different perspectives on your coaching session - both from your own different viewpoint, as well as how others view what you see.
To be effective in judging situations and making the beneficial decisions, our perception (the process of gaining relevant and correct information) informs our decisions – the identification of what the ‘problem’ is, and the solution to solve it. To enable us to ensure the action we take is the most relevant and constructive, it is vital that our judgements are based on clear and correct perceptions and the solution is implemented effectively. This in turn would lead to (hopefully) positive outcomes and consequences in the development of our athletes and sessions.
