8 Building your coach developer 101 guide
The main discussion points from this session that you might share and discuss with colleagues are described in Table 1 below.
|Practices and ideas||Description|
|28. Observational focus||Your observational gaze can be influenced by the presence or otherwise of observational criteria or a checklist that influences what is and what is not seen.|
|29. Systematic observation||A method, if used methodically and rigorously, that can provide detailed and often numerical data about the behaviours and actions of coaches.|
|30. Planning for observation||Observational visits need to be well planned and organised beforehand to be optimised.|
|31. Discussing feedback||Acting on feedback is influenced not by content but how the coach receives it. Carefully thinking through language and how it is discussed helps encourage coaches to be receptive.|
|32. Peer-to-peer feedback||Feedback between colleagues is a mutually beneficial learning process that should be encouraged as a continuous aspect of learning and development.|
