Where to next?

Watch Paddy Upton outline what you'll be covering in Week 2 of Coaching in the Knowledge Era.
PADDY UPTON: Now that we’ve come to the end of Week One, here’s a quick overview of what we’ll be looking at next week. Next week we are going to introduce how athletes learn and grow, which is a framework to help you navigate the changing leadership landscape. And specifically, to use in adopting more of a coaching approach with your athletes. We’ll also cover why it’s important to create thinking athletes, and go on to explore practical ways for you to accomplish this. See you then.

A quick look at what’s coming up.

Next week, you’ll:

  • be introduced to an experiential learning cycle–a framework to help you navigate the changing coaching landscape and to use in adopting more of a coaching (rather than instructing) approach
  • consider why it’s important to create thinking players
  • investigate practical ways to accomplish this through ‘coaching’.

Your task

In the comments, share one thing you’re looking forward to finding out more about next week.

If you have questions that continue to puzzle you, please ask them in the comments, or ‘like’ questions others have asked.
