Coaching to Change Athlete Technique: 5 Minutes with Bo Hanson

Welcome to this week’s video series. One of the most critical roles that any coach has is creating change in their athletes. That is, understanding how change is created and understanding how your athletes actually manage that change. There is a model that I always come back to and it’s quite a simple model. The purpose of this video today is to actually explain and articulate what the steps in the process are in this model. So we call this model the ‘D x V x P’ Model. Ultimately, what we’re describing here is three mechanisms – three key points we have to hit on to create change in our athletes whether that change relates to the athletes’ technique or any other behavioral change that you might have in mind for that player.

One Element: 5 Minutes with Bo Hanson

Today we’re going to talk to you about a concept which we call “The One Element” concept. Now this is something that I’ve noticed when we look at all of the teams that we’ve worked with now, more than 40 different sports, 700 teams, more than 22 thousand coaches, athletes, officials and people who are very good at what they do. What we’ve noticed is that these individuals and these teams, when you ask them “What is it that makes you as good as you are?” A lot of them are able to say, “Well we do a lot things well but really THIS is the key thing that we do well.” So they’re able to break down all of the things they do well into one absolutely core element that we call the One Element factor.

Any quality leadership program as well as being founded in self-awareness, maps to a quality leadership model and there are lots of leadership models out there.

The Leadership Challenge in Sport: 5 Minutes with Bo Hanson

In addressing the leadership challenge, the fundamental question was what type of inclusions do you put in a quality leadership development program?

Vince Lombardi was once quoted as saying: “Only by knowing yourself, can you be an effective leader.” It really does come down to leadership programs being founded in what we’d call self-awareness. That is, the level of knowledge an athlete has about their strengths, their limitations, their motivations, the type of environment that they respond well to and the type of coaching that they respond well too.
