Good Coaches Provide Value

Being on Power Athlete Radio three times is like getting to third base. The excitement, the sense of achievement, and the undeniable sexual tension. Just ask this week’s three-timer, Brett Bartholomew [@coach_brettb]. What started as a few bros catching up turned into another incredible conversation about the value of connection. Now working towards his doctorate, the author and coach brings even more science to the seemingly superficial benefits of good communication. It’s almost like…an…art…of coaching. Enter Brett’s podcast: Art of Coaching.
Wondering why you can’t “connect” with your athletes? Quit pointing to their deficiencies as the reason for your lack of success. Get out of your own way and adapt. Not all athletes operate the same way, therefore, to assume your single coaching style will have a broad effect is ridiculous. Art of Coaching host and Conscious Coaching author, Brett Bartholomew [@coach_brettb] joins us to explain why you’re struggle to have the impact you so desire and how to drive that change. Start asking the right questions about your leadership position and getting the honest answers. Speaking of questions…you might ask why there is so much Gone in 60 Seconds discussion. Valid question with no satisfying answer. What do Genghis Kahn and Scott Caan have in common? Nothing, but the fellas struggle to bridge the gap anyways. Strength, Conditioning, Pop Culture, History.
