he also has 4 books, coaches would improve their standards by reading Checklist and Betterthe other two are worth a read but more medical based
Great listen! I am always learning and wanting to improve and get better. Does this someone have to be a "coach" or someone who is "more qualified" than you to give you advice and feedback. The element he talk about when having an other set of eyes interested me. Someone from the outside just watching, and asking you questions to get you to think about your practice. Could this be the players themselves, a coach from another sport, and assistant coach. Would this dialogue develop you but also them, especially if with your athletes or players? Would the later lead to having a mixtures of both style he spoke about?Everyone needs a coach and the violin teacher style "learn and develop for yourselves"
Facilitator's is a word that coaches use. Making a joint learning environment works, if you are not refreshed and looking forward to planning your next session, you need to reflect and try to find where facilitating went into coaching. Learn along with your people, yes ask the window cleaner what they thought they may be able to brighten up yourday letting the sunlight in.
It is well known fact that someone on the outside looking in is invaluable. If things are not happening even if you are doing everything correct, someone who is not experienced as you in the field can see things that should be corrected. I often ask my athletes, parents and bystanders, could I have done things better? What would have you done if you was in charge of this session? This allows me to 'tailor' the session for individuals (so and athlete centred approach) and allows me to evolve as a coach,
Very interesting talk. It highlights, in a coaching context, the importance of reflection and continuous improvement. But how might this reflection be developed? Maybe by having coaches work collaboratively in a "community of practice" might be one way. Or by having a mentor to offer another perspective on a regular basis. Or, as Ian suggests in the previous post, getting frequent feedback from players can be a powerful way to support reflection.
'a well known fact';not in my 35years experience,or as my dad used to say; 'opinions are like bum-holes, everyone's got one.we are living in an age where, everyones opinion needs to be respected and listened to,no matter how wrong and unqualified,i'd rather be taught by an expert coach than, an opinionated bystander. not everyone looking in is valuable and more often destructive,although 35years experience, i still wouldn't call it a fact, anecdotal evidence is nearly the worst kind Atul's video bystander is a retired surgical professor (rather than the hospital porter) and i'm sure Atul pre-selected someone he highly respected;and i'm of the opinion; 'your not a coach, if you're not mentoring someone.'
I read it somewhere, " We can't see what we cannot see, after all we are human", and thus an "extra pair of eyes" will definitely help. Equally important is the player's openness to feedback and giving psychological permission to the coach to share what's being observed. What good is the observation if the coach doesn't get to share for lack of courage or acceptance.
