Its important as a coach that we are tempted to go for the quick fix. At times coaching can be a challenge to your own character.
It’s easier to solve your players problems for them and it won’t take up as much time in your session. But by being persistent and patient you are teaching more than just a skill.
Get used to guiding and questioning rather than instructing in your practices, there will be a time for instruction but being persistent in your approach is key. Don’t give in to that quick fix and be ready to play the long game. Rather than scolding get used to showing the reality and having a difficult conversation. Then keep at it. Keep holding them accountable to the reality of the situation by using video, stats and evidence and keep having those conversations.
