Each coach’s style of coaching varies some like you to be very physical in defence and other more around improving your technical ability.
I found these coaches communication to coincide with the way they saw the game being played and where people should be looking to improve on like the defensive coach being very aggressive and the technical coach being a bit more laid back.
These experiences which I will cover in more depth are when I am a sport coach, school buddy and a team player.
The first leadership skill a sports coach requires is communication.
Evaluation skills are when I review the session to see how well the session went in line with the planed activity.
This aids me to develop the following week’s session and in that so that I know whether or not I recap what I have previously done.
My experiences of change have come from my years of playing and learning handball.
I have encountered many different coaches from several different countries and cultures and their interpretations of leadership.
Following on from my first skill of communication, being a school buddy has taught me the skills of listening and motivating.
Listening is a key skill as a phrase my dad keeps saying is “2 ears, one mouth” ,meaning listening is more important than talking, and everyday life you need to listen to understand what is being said or going on around you.
