At BC Congress last week I was asked to do a presentation on Making a Career Out of Coaching.
Going over my notes the night before, I suddenly realized how little I knew about the topic … though I’d been a full-time coach since 1980.
I emailed Frank Sahlein and (happily) he offered to sit in. In this way we had at least one expert on coaching “careers” in the room.
Click PLAY or watch a brief summary of my presentation on YouTube.
The topic drew only a small group of coaches, resulting in a brainstorming session. I posted the resulting notes on RecGymnastics.com
My main conclusion was that coaches from socialist nations like Canada are mostly ignorant when it comes to business and career planning. The USA has many experts in that field. My strongest advice for coaches is to bring in an expert like Frank Sahlein, Founder and CEO of 3rd Level Consulting.
I’ll be taking my own advice, consulting with Frank this Fall.
Check his gym, the Wing Center, in Boise, Idaho.
And this initiative, too:
Based on the premise that people are made to move, Motion Evolution integrates physical literacy, nutrition education, brain-body science, personal best and play, making the program a complete wellness package.
