    Love the thought and teaching. Absolutely dead on balls accurate!!! One thing though; Dave calls it Reflective Coaching, and the title of this post is Reactive Coaching. Did I miss something?

    Awesome stuff man! This literally happened last week after a snow day…I didn’t catch myself and throw the clipboard down like I should have. I knew something was up but didn’t put my finger on it until I reflected on it all night—or should I say beat myself up over it all night.

    Wow! Very impressive and accurate. Thanks for taking the time to really encourage coaches of all ages, education, and experience to remember the impotance of not only what they teach and ahow they teach, but how it is recieved and comprehended. A valuable lesson in coaching effectiveness that all should be concerned with. WHat good are credentials and experience if we are not effective teachers,first and foremost. Thanks! jIm Blaz

    Very very right on! I am getting my Master’s degree in Coaching, Phys Ed and Health, and this stuff is exactly what we talk about. Always yearning to become a better coach, never thinking you know it all, and internally motivating your athletes because they want to work, not just because you’re telling them to!
