While the idea of coaching is relatively new, its been around for a long time. If you think about the best athletes in golf or tennis or track they all have coaches to help them improve and strive to be the best. Football teams, basketball teams, and hockey teams have coaches. There are coaches for voice or drama, and coaches who help people with job or life change. It doesn’t matter in what field the coach operates, their key role is to help someone to improve what they are doing. This booklet aims to help people to become more effective coaches and help all would-be coaches to progressively improve their performance via a range of practical techniques.
