Cue, Do, and Debrief

Coach and Author, Nick Winkelman [@nickwinkelman] joins The Crew for the second time to discuss his book, The Language of Coaching. In the book, Nick dives deep into how instruction, feedback, and cueing can significantly affect training outcomes. This includes getting your athletes to take an active interest in their own learning so that their behaviors become an automatic part of their performance. Refining your coaching skills requires more than just modifying how you communicate with your athletes. It also demands that you ask yourself WHY you coach. Stay tuned, young grasshopper.

There is far more to coaching than barking out commands and the occasional motivational speech. There is an entire language embedded in the practice and to become proficient in guiding your athletes towards excellence, you must become fluent in that language. Nick Winkelman joins us this week to discuss his book, The Language of Coaching, and break down the most effective way to impact performance. Communication is key not only for achieving the end result but also to make yourself indispensable to your stakeholders. Nick has a career of doing just that and is here to give coaches, new and seasoned, his greatest tips to succeed
