Capability and Communication – detail

Capability and Communication

Coaching is a social process. You  need to know your players. The interpersonal relationships in coaching is a central theme for the growth of a coaches leadership capability. ‘The ability of the coach to identify their leadership capability and the level of leadership maturity of the player is an essential tool’.

The key factors that influence the coach-player relationship are closeness or connection, along with the mutual commitment, dedication and engagement.  The coach needs to relate to the setting they are leading, display good perception and judgment, combined with exceptional values.  ‘You need to know who you are as a coach leader’.

Coach Leadership – Capability will help you  positively change the player outcomes of: Competence, Confidence, Connection and Character.


As a coach leader you need to be clear before a training session or game how you want to communicate with your players, and how you will engage them to be involved in the discussions and conversations.  The style of communication needs to be true to your personality, but aligned with the players capability to relate and understand.

Players will respect and trust the coach and will grow in confidence in this type of coach communicator environment.

Coach Leadership – communication  will help you recognise which players want particular styles of communication, and where your players sit with  interpersonal connection.
