What All Great Coaches Understand

As the great Lenny Kravitz once said, The Difference is WHY.


As coaches learn and develop their knowledge increased. They learn about the mechanics of certain skills, of the mechanics of certain tactics.

This provides a list of things to do.

Then, coaches learn better and more effective ways to teach these things. Adding more and more things to their toolbox. This eventually becomes overwhelming as there are more things that can be taught than there are hours in the day.

The difference from this point is WHY.

When coaches understand why, their world opens up. When the answer stops being something learned in a seminar or from a blog post (!), and becomes an understanding of the outcome and the constraints, the course forward is clearer. From this point the coach understands not just how to do things, but why to do things and, just as importantly, why not to do things.
