CDC 17 July - Vampires & Wolves

  • ABradshaw
    This Friday we are delighted to welcome Andy Abraham to explore the Vampires & Wolves paper attached and how we may have experienced some of the types of individuals and behaviours it describes.
    The two categories are summarised below (p265 of the paper), with the split apparent in their self-schemata, thinking and reported behavior.
    Vampires - these coaches seemed to see themselves as superior and as working in ways so different that they were ‘a race apart’. Confident and self-focused, these coaches would quite literally ‘suck the life’ out of people whose actions were seen as getting in the way.
    Wolves although equally driven and uncompromising, were veracious in their search for and assimilation of any idea, technique or person who they felt would provide an edge. Often working in tight knit groups (packs?), membership of which spanned national and even sport divides, wolves often worked collaboratively to develop their practice.
    In preparation for Friday please have a think around:
    • Someone you identify (or identified) as being a wolf
    • Another who is/was more of a vampire (or potential vampire)
    • Any situation as a coach educator or coach developer when you may have been publically challenged (or at least felt challenged)
    We are going to use breakout rooms to help discussions, so we are heading back to our Samba space. Link below:
