The ABC's of Coaching: How teaching kindergarten made me a better performance coach
In my previous life (after completing 5 years as a student athlete and before I thought you could actually be a performance coach as a career), I had a brief stint where I sought out the challenge to impart knowledge on a new generation of learners in a more traditional sense. I was an elementary school teacher. I completed a Bachelor of Primary Education, was certified by the Ontario College of Teachers and off I went to conquer Kindergarten. While my experience was much tamer than ‘the Arnolds’ was in the classic 90’s comedy Kindergarten Cop, it really illustrated the value of clear, concise and conscious communication.
