On the face of it, this might not look like much. But, when the ‘penny drops’ it’s a wonderful moment between coach and athlete.
Part of my coaching philosophy is to support athletes to ‘realise for themselves’, as you can see from the recent WhatsApp conversation. Rather than me telling athletes what to do, if they realise the way for themselves then they own that experience. I believe it’s my job to create the environment and trust to support that self-learning.
