Simplicity

The best coaches are the ones that are athlete-centred. That means treating the athlete the way they want to be treated with the aim of helping them reach their true potential.

Part of being an athlete-centred coach is to share information in a way that they will understand and buy into. Using highly technical language and jargon has it’s place. However, in my experience the real experts are those that make complex theories and principles sound simple.  The ones who use technobabble tend to be ego-driven (trying to sound intelligent) or don’t really know what they’re talking about (sounding intelligent but confusing the pants off everyone else).  Which coach are you?

‘Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler’.

(Albert Einstein, 1879-1955).
