ConnectedCoaches Content Champion Wendy Russell was interviewed on the importance of making sessions fun and engaging. Watch the video (below)


Listen very carefully and you may just hear it, floating on the breeze from the direction of the UK Coaching offices. It is the sound of a fanfare announcing the arrival of Coaching Week – a seven-day celebration of all that is great about coaching.


It is our opportunity as an industry to showcase the wonderfully wide-ranging benefits great coaching has on individuals and promote the tremendous impact coaching has on society as a whole. And it is a chance too for the beneficiaries of great coaching to share their personal reflections of how their exposure to coaching has changed their lives for the better.


Of course coaches, in all their many modern-day guises, recognise that the personal benefits of coaching go far beyond merely helping people become better athletes. Coaching positively and profoundly impacts on all aspects of people’s lives. Coaching Week will allow us as a sector to spread this message to the masses like never before.


To get the first ever Coaching Week off to a flying start, UK Coaching today launches its six key principles of great coaching to help define what great coaching may look like.


Centred on the appropriate and easy-to-remember acronym PEOPLE – because coaching is all about people – these principles are:


P – Person centred

E – Empowering

O – Organised

P – Positive

L – Learning

E – Engaging


Each day UK Coaching will be highlighting great coaching stories to bring to life what great coaching is and how it continues to benefit others. And UK Coaching is appealing to ConnectedCoaches members to lend a helping hand.


What do you think of the six principles? Have you any personal anecdotes you can share that demonstrate these key constituents of great coaching?


UK Coaching acknowledges these aren’t the only principles by any means, so what other cornerstones of coaching would you like to add to the list and why?


Let’s shout our views on great coaching from the rooftops this week on ConnectedCoaches and on social media channels.


Use the hashtag #GreatCoaching and share your stories of how you have impacted on the lives of your participants so that together we can make it a week people will remember and help raise the national profile of coaching.


A more detailed explanation of the key principles of great coaching can be found here.

I would add Enjoyment to principles of #Greatcoaching. Children adults perform better and are much more open to learning new skills and principles if they actually Enjoy what they're doing. Especially young children. You will find it much easier to Engage with them if they Enjoy the process
