Dos and Don'ts for Quality Coaching

Coaching is something that all of us at one time or another has needed in order to achieve a certain result. It’s usually a term associated with sports, but there are also coaches for life, business, speech, acting, and so on. In general, we look to those who are more experienced for mentorship. But just because someone is more experienced doesn’t mean they will make good coaches.

 

Here are a few dos and don’ts for quality coaching:

 

Do Motivate

In most cases, we already have the natural aptitude for certain skills, and the coach is there to encourage and inspire students to hone those skills or develop that aptitude with training, hard work, and persistence. Look for, and comment upon, anything a trainee does well. And constantly try to find new ways to engage them with their tasks at hand.

 

Don’t pressure

Sometimes a coach can go overboard with motivation and it becomes overwhelming pressure. It can drive trainees to extremes in order to achieve success so that it’s no longer healthy. It can also emerge as a sense of failure that can be hard to overcome. The spectacle of the drill sergeant abusing a bunch of raw recruits may seem funny, but also remember the cautionary tale of Private Pyle in the movie Full Metal Jacket.

 

 

 

Do instill good values

Quality coaching is not about teaching the value of winning but the value of a winning attitude. A good coach encourages those being coached to strive to be the best that they can be, but at the same time emphasizes the importance of good sportsmanship.

 

Strive for improvement rather than perfection

Not every student will make the grade. The idea behind an effective coach is to put each student on a path where they can achieve to the best of their ability, and steadily improve their skills. The most important lesson a coach can teach is how to go beyond one’s limits.

 

Don’t give up

Coaching can be a frustrating endeavour, but a good coach has to be patient. The best candidates for quality coaching are those who ask questions and force the coach to react to their queries as an opportunity to impart further wisdom.

 

Quality coaching requires more than know-how and experience. A good coach has to have a good understanding of human psychology and the persistence to carry an assignment through to the end.
