Over the course of Valentine’s Day and the week following, you will see posts on Twitter from the sports coach UK Coach Education team ( @SCUKCoachEd #LoveLearning ) around why coaches love learning, and the impact it has on their coaching and development.
I thought it would be a good idea to replicate this here, so create a trail of the learning we have undertaken, how we like to engage and why we choose to develop as coaches and coach educators.
Learning (as defined by the Oxford Dictionary) is the acquisition of knowledge or skills through study, experience, or being taught.
I find the whole area of how, when and why we learn fascinating, and I am always looking for different ways to be creative and innovative in acquiring learning and infomration that can make be a better coach, as well as a better parent and a person.
My nephew is part of the London Broncos Academy, and they have a phrase that being a Bronco makes you a better person – through the experiences and learning they experience through their involvement within the ‘bubble’ of their sport, the impact can be seen across the board.
I spend time talking to him about this, and how it can link across my own areas of study and interest, and how it links to my other sources of recent learning – from Disney Pixar, through my post graduate and workshops, to a throwaway comment from one of my daughters.
So this is your task……
If you could take 10 minutes to share your thoughts here, and on Twitter if you are able to, it will act as vehicle to see what learning and development we are undertaking and signpost us to different topics and ways to learn.
If you frame your answers around the questions below, that will give us a huge amount of sharing
1. What is the last learning you did as a coach?
2. What has been the biggest influence on your learning as a coach?
3. What/who motivates you to engage in learning about coaching?
4. How do you prefer to engage in learning about coaching?
5. How do you love to learn as a coach?
6. What makes you love learning about coaching?
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
