1, THE HOLY GRAIL – HOW TO SELECT THE BEST TEAM?

Ask any of the coaching greats what makes the most successful team and almost without exception their immediate response is ‘selection’. So is selection of the best team, the holy grail in sport? That is likely debatable, but in the end, getting it right (or as close to ‘right’ as possible), will make a significant impact on your results and be much more rewarding and enjoyable for you as a coach!

2, WHEN ALL YOU HAVE IS SPORT?

Almost by definition elite athletes are extremely dedicated to their sport, coaches are always ‘time poor’ and things outside of sport are seen as a luxury they cannot afford. What happens if all you have is your sport? To be blunt, your performances will suffer. But there is also another scenario that is becoming more common – the pursuit of the ‘all round’ achiever… Want to read more… https://www.athleteassessments.com/articles/when_all_you_have_is_sport.html

3, DO I HAVE TO LIKE MY ATHLETES?

This is a question I find coaches interested in and keen to have an opinion about! What do you think? Inspired by a recorded interview of coaching legend, John Wooden we look at whether or not coaches have to ‘like’ their athletes.

5, HOW TO GET AHEAD AS A COACH OR ATHLETE

Some of the feedback we received from readers of The Ultimate Coach Handbook was (as one example): “I’m on board with your approach, I love your coaching philosophy but I don’t know what to do next?! How do I get ahead?”  So in response, we’ve taken action!

Find out about the new “Get Ahead” special offer (inspired by the above feedback!).
Coaches go to:  https://www.athleteassessments.com/coach_package.html
Athletes go to:  https://www.athleteassessments.com/athlete_package.html

We have limited the number of special packages we release each month to only 8 for coaches and 4 for athletes.

You can immerse yourself, in your own personalized development program with 4x Olympian and International Coaching Consultant, Bo Hanson supporting you all the way!

Here is how you Get Ahead… You receive:

  • Your own CoachDISC or AthleteDISC Profile Report
  • A 45-minute personal debrief consultation with Bo Hanson (4x Olympian & Coaching Consultant) via telephone or video conference
  • A follow up consultation with Bo Hanson to ensure you are putting into practice your new strategies and getting great results
  • ‘The Coach-Athlete Relationship’ DVD, The Ultimate Coach Handbook, DISC Coaching Card and postage & handling included.
  • Additional access to videos, articles and lots of online resources to ensure the most valuable experience to get results.
  • 30-Day, Unconditional, 100% Satisfaction or Get Your Money Back GUARANTEE!

The pricing is ridiculous and that’s why there are only 8 available each month for coaches and 4 for athletes.

Do you want to be an exceptional coach or athlete? The key to achieving this is all about developing self-awareness, understanding your personal style and having the support to take you to the next level.

To take advantage of this special “Get Ahead” Package and to check how many remain available for November (or get in early for December)…
