When is a coach a good coach...when they talk less!!


Those of you who follow my posts will know that I coach a hockey team as well as work with performance golfers. Well this season my team has been struggling...by struggling I mean we are rock bottom of the league!!

I have been busy with work and haven't really been able to do enough with them or be focussed enough to get them to understand what needs to be done. They are talented but young and  inexperienced and we are losing games that we should be winning because they are not really able to execute game plans effectively.

I haven't been doing the rounds of the blogs that I follow very much recently and I have been missing out on some really good bits of information like this great great nugget from Dan Coyle author of The Talent Code on how great coaches communicate.

I know I am going to be applying this from now on and hopefully our fortunes might change around.

Happy reading.
