When are you at your best as a coach?
Sean Penn movie where he plays a young policeman and his old, craggy partner, tells a story about how best to go downhill to the pasture.
As someone getting towards the wizened old end of the scale I recognise the value of the enthusiasm of youth. Sometimes not seeing or knowing why something shouldn't work has a real value. Same with not remembering all the times something was tried and it didn't work and so it is not worth bothering to try again.**
This idea got me thinking of coaching in relation to the Dunning-Kruger effect.
