Positive Coaching eLearning course

British Gymnastics:

The course is free for all our members who hold a Level 2 or above coaching qualification and is compulsory. …

The course aims to raise awareness on how different belief systems impact coaching behaviours and the coach-participant relationship. …

Men’s Artistic Head National Coach, Paul Hall MBE recently completed the course:

“… I know the value of good feedback and, having just completed the Positive Coaching eLearning course, I would recommend it to everyone involved in the sport. Its message is well presented, and I found the course to be an essential tool in creating a safe and effective coaching environment.”


Simone … so much G.O.A.T.

Gifs of Simone doing crazy things in training on Tumblr.

If you use Tumblr you know management has been crappy for many years.

Yahoo bought Tumblr for over $1 billion in 2013. They promised not to screw it up. Then did screw it up. It was sold to Oath and Verizon.

This week Tumblr was sold for less than $3 million.

The GOOD NEWS is that a small company called Automattic bought Tumblr. They run WordPress, the platform that runs at least a quarter of the sites on the web including this one.

Automattic actually knows what to do with microblogging.
