Although coaching can be meaningful, exciting, and fulfilling work, it can also be a tough job with significant pressures and stressors. When coaches are performing optimally, their words and actions match the clear values and goals they have set for their teams. However, too often, the stress of the job, the pressure to achieve, and the overwhelming nature of additional responsibilities jeopardize coaches’ desire to continue.
In this course, you will examine the challenges of coaching and learn how to cope with internal and external pressures to be an effective leader. Because you need to be able to manage yourself before you can manage others, you will focus on cultivating techniques for juggling multiple roles, controlling stress, building emotional intelligence, and defining a clear value system that aligns with your goals and actions. In addition, you’ll learn how to be a role model and pass on the strategies you gain to other coaches (and to parents and students as well) to help them perform at their highest level.
With the techniques you learn in this course, you will be able to prevent burnout and reignite your passion for the job not only for yourself, but for others as well.
