Curious Coaches' Club: Coaching Craft: Developing a Coaching Culture

Curious Coaches' Club: Coaching Craft: Developing a Coaching Culture

Grant Downie OBE shares his experiences and wisdom of developing high-performing teams from his varied roles, including working with Team GB, Manchester City FC, The Premier League and Cirque Du Soleil, among many others. Often as coaches we don't work alone; at many levels of sport and activity we usually coach in a pair or within a bigger team of coaches. Sometimes we may also be fortunate enough to have expertise from sports scientists or psychologists in our team. Creating the right culture for how we work together can be difficult, but it has the potential to transform the experience of the people we coach. Each week, the Curious Coaches Club brings experts together for a coaching conversation. https://bit.ly/3g637mv
