Coaching the Person in Front of You: The Key to Helping Your Participants Thrive

The more you take time to understand and connect with your participants, the more you will help them flourish

We know that great coaching encourages more people to be active, more often. We also know there are much wider benefits involved, including physical and mental wellbeing, and economic, individual and social development. 

Great coaching improves a person’s experience of sport and physical activity by providing specialised support and guidance aligned to their individual needs and aspirations. 

Three key ways to improve a person’s experience of sport and physical activity that really make a difference are:

  1. Understanding them as an individual
  2. Connecting with them and building positive relationships
  3. Supporting them to Thrive

We show below how the person-centred ‘Understand + Connect = Thrive’ equation lies at the heart of transformative coaching.
