[PODCAST] Keith Grabowski, Denver sport coaching professors discuss how to become an effective coach

By Keith Grabowski | Posted 10/11/2018


This week in the Smart Coaching series, co-hosts Keith, Dr. Gearity and Dr. Kuklick follow up last week’s show about the athlete’s perception of effective coaching to the coaches directly. Common knowledge would tell coaches to focus on the technical and tactical things, but the job demands so much more. Keith asks for ways to help coaches develop in being more effective, and the doctors provide insight from the research. The doctors harp that coaches should study themselves while also getting insight from various sources to help them be more effective.
