The Many Types of Coaches

The term "Coach" is wide - starting from whether its a person or an object.... to the methods used to be effective. What strikes you?

There are commonalities:

  • Coaches get you to where you want to be.

  • Coaches are there with you on the journey.

  • Coaches accelerate the wins. Most players at the top of their game have one.

The confusion comes from the methods deployed.

For example:

  • A coach/carriage/bus (object) literally carries you to your destination so you don't have to go by foot.

  • To win matches, a football coach can be screaming instructions from the sidelines during the game.

  • Whilst, a badminton coach is don't do that. The coach will observe, strategize and provide feedback only during certain breaks in a match.

  • An executive coach focuses on developing from within, creatively provoking your thinking process to maximise your potential.

Very different, isn't it?
