Interesting read and some great points! It always come down to knowing your athletes....Coaching is coaching (without sounding flippant!)

You might find my blog 'Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks' interesting...... http://www.sportscoachuk.org/blog/teaching-old-dogs-new-tricks

I think for Elly's situation perserverane is key. You're doing everything right, even if the group do not see it yet. I had a think what I would do in this situation and I think that first i'd chat to some other coaches like Jon above - his blog is well worth a read.

But then what i'd probably do is ask the group to outline what they feel a coach should 'have or do' in terms of skills, values and knowledge. Then ask them to think about and present back what they feel they best respond to in a coach, or teacher or leader.

I bet you that what they've outlined as a top coach and what they feel they respond best to is not the shouty sterotype - i'm thinking Class of 92 for those who saw that show! That then will help guide them towards seeing your way is the right way - Very Brian Clough in outcome, but without the fisticuffs or screaming first!

Of course we've had chats and post-match debriefs and I will certainly ask the question suggested (thanks David T). I've been researching and am currently pondering on two models: Lizard or Learner (courtesy of Trevor Ragan - trainugly.com) and Chimp Management (Prof Steve Peters) ... is it that adults are more fearful of making errors and/or is the Chimp looking into the Computer and finding Gremlins or, even worse, Goblins??? BTW, Eagles had a good win last Sunday! Please keep the tips coming in.

Congrats on the win Elly! If anyone is interested in more about the models of Trevor Ragan that Elly is referring to this is a great video from Trevor we shared recently https://www.connectedcoaches.org/spaces/10/welcome-and-general/video/robertkmaaye/talks/58/learning-how-to-do-it-better
