Sticky Coaching

0

I’m as big of an advocate for sports science understanding and application to coaching as you’ll find but I still understand that there’s far more to being a good coach than just understanding biomechanics, physiology, and the like. Things like emotional intelligence, relationship building, management skills and communication are what allow you to take advantage of your technical knowledge. Without these things you’re no better than the brilliant chemistry professor who can’t teach.

In this short TEDx talk, Nick Grantham provides some insight on these issues.

TEDx talks are great and there for opening your mind to new ideas. You can listen to my recent TEDx talk on human performance here.
