The Coaching Process
This CPD module explores topics relevant to coaches who are working with development or performance gymnasts or managing gymnastics programmes and teams of coaches. It is designed to either develop your knowledge or reinforce your understanding on the important topics of the coaching process, coaching philosophy, and the qualities of effective coaches.
By exploring these topics in more depth, you are better equipped to reflect on and evaluate your own practice and support peers or those you mentor or manage. This reflection and evaluation are critical in your role as a coach, as they can facilitate change and continual development.
This module specifically looks at the complex processes involved in coaching by introducing models such as Lyle’s (1999) Coaching Process. It also looks extensively at the range of topics you should consider when developing or evaluating your coaching philosophy. Lastly this module looks at the qualities of great coaches.
On completion of the module there are additional Take-home Tasks which can help you apply your learnings in your coaching context, on your own, with peers or your coaching team, or with a mentor or manager. These tasks are designed to be flexible, to empower you to take ownership and make them your own, to ensure you get the most out of your time invested in CPD.
