Developing decision makers - An empowerment approach to coaching

Coaching is a complex process. Coaches are responsible for enabling athletes to learn. Like other learners, athletes develop understanding when they are involved in solving problems for themselves, thus enhancing their learning. Important tools in the learning process are to develop new ideas, knowledge and the ability to make decisions. When coaches use an empowering style of coaching, athletes gain and take ownership of knowledge, development and decision making that will help them to maximise their performance.
