What is the best bit of coaching advice you have ever received?

As part of our weekly social media discussion #womenswednesday; we asked female coaches around the world what the best bit of coaching advice was they had ever been given.  Here are some their answers!

Coach Amy

“Goals are meant to be scored that’s the object of the game. How you react is most key.”

Jazz Hervin

“Do the best with where you are and what you currently have; and success will find you!”

“All of what we do is for the greater good.”

Cheryl Dewhirst 

“Install a belief in someone and you are halfway there.”

Lauren Meehan

“find your own voice and be confident in it! Also, don’t buy into praise/criticism too much – stay on an even keel”

Shelley Kerr

“it’s important to talk but more important to listen”

Mel Marshall

“I was told, ‘Your performance will only change if you want it to, if you don’t want to improve keep doing the same thing!'”

Lois Fidler

“I was told, ‘Your performance will only change if you want it to, if you don’t want to improve keep doing the same thing!'”

Gemma Dunning

“once told me ‘listen and work with other coaches, take onboard the good stuff and bin the crap'”

via Forum:

“I would say, never make a decision based on emotion.
Have any of you read the book “A Chimp Paradox”, it’s a psychology book that breaks down why we make certain decisions, lose our temper etc…it basically says that if you are making decisions based on emotion (i.e. sack someone because you are angry, eat the cake because you are sad etc) then your chimp is in control and not your ‘human’.
As a coach, there are so many emotions every day, it would be easy to make rash decisions…so take a step back and think…is this my emotion deciding or my head.”
