The Power of Coaching
by Islay Auty and Penny Pollard
The Coach can fulfil many roles and ideally should encourage the rider to work on what they can't do rather than what they can do - helping them to be non-defensive and resist showing off. Both praise and criticism are essential, delivered with confidence and conviction. The also needs to understand when to push on and when to leave the problem for another day. This book is for all coaches who want to enhance and refine their coaching skills.
