Decoding coaching greatness and what it means for our practice

Whenever we think of ways of improving our practice our focus tends to center around what we do – what methods of training we deploy, what exercises we use, what loads, what progressions, what velocities etc. while these will always be important, something we often overlook is that it’s not just what we do – but how we do it that counts. The coach will always be integral to the success of any training intervention – yet far less is understood about what makes a great coach. Is there a single code to greatness and if so, how should we integrate this into our own practice? This presentation will examine coaching from a systems perspective opening up new perspectives on what makes a great coach and subsequently highlighting many potential development opportunities via which we can improve our own coaching practice.
