We hope you are enjoying finding out to become a successful coach in the knowledge era and learning key coaching skills.

This is the first course in a series developed collaboratively between Deakin University and Paddy Upton, business coach and coach of several successful international cricket teams. Together, the courses will help you further develop your coaching practice.

There are three more courses in the series currently: The next course, Player-centred Coaching, examines in more detail the differences between coach-centred and player-centred coaching approaches, plus the impact of both approaches on player development and performance. This course starts on 26 November 2018. You can enrol here.

The following course, The Self-aware Coach, provides opportunities for you to identify core personal values and how these might impact your coaching, as well as to evaluate your values and actions to inform your leadership decisions. Starts 14 January 2019. You can enrol here.

When you’ve completed these three courses, learn to use a range of coaching principles and strategies to create a positive and supportive team culture in Team Coaching. You can add this to your wishlist here.

We recommend completing Coaching in the Knowledge Era, Player-centred Coaching and The Self-aware Coach before commencing Team Coaching.
