Coaching the Person in Front of You

Coaching is all about people. This newly-launched workshop will give you a deeper awareness of why great people skills are an intrinsic part of being an effective coach. Ultimately, the more coaches understand and connect with people they coach – by observing, noticing and communicating – the more they will be able to support them and help them thrive.

Coaching the Person in Front of You

Coaches must be person-centred, putting participants' feelings, thoughts, ambitions and motivations at the heart of everything they do

Coaching is all about people. This newly-launched workshop will give you a deeper awareness of why great people skills are an intrinsic part of being an effective coach. Ultimately, the more coaches understand and connect with people they coach – by observing, noticing and communicating – the more they will be able to support them and help them thrive.

On this online workshop you will explore these three core principles – understand, connect and thrive – in greater detail by engaging in and reflecting on a range of interactive activities that demonstrate how a commitment to taking a genuine interest in the person behind the performer is crucial in developing a lifelong love of sport and physical activity in your participants.

You will learn:

  • how to develop and model a person-centred philosophy and hone your soft skills to enable you to have the greatest possible impact with your participants.
  • strategies and tactics to help you identify a person's individual needs, motivations and goals using the understand + connect = thrive framework.
  • to become an expert in people so that whatever your objective, you can provide the most engaging experiences for your participants.

Accompanying Resources:
You will receive a digital copy of our 'Coaching the Person in Front of You' booklet to guide you in your future coaching. The 40-page resource pulls together research and insight on how to better engage people taking part in sport and physical activity. It includes:

  • Activities to ignite your passion to learn.
  • Space for you to record your thinking, learning and planned actions.
  • An explanation of the PEOPLE acronym.
  • Sections on the art of noticing and observation, and advice on how to understand and connect with people.
  • A guide to the importance of Emotional Intelligence in helping people thrive.
