Be a coach, not a programmer, or a rehabilitator, or a machine. Human relations cannot be overstated when it comes to coaching and leading people. Get to know your athlete’s personalities, tendencies, and needs. This requires you to actually give a f*ck about the person in front of you. There are countless ways to demonstrate and apply this extra thought into your coaching practice. Account for subjective experiences, understand that people are different, listen empathetically, and have a sense of humor! This is a fine science, and comes through experience but is a necessary part of your growth as a coach. The best coaches can marry interpersonal approaches and effective training interventions, and that’s what we are working toward. Thanks for listening.
