EXSC 243 - Performance Coaching Strategies


Credits: Three(3)
The course will offer foundational underpinnings that will help tomorrow’s practitioners better learn the skills necessary to successfully lead and interact with clients and athletes from diverse backgrounds and upbringings. It will draw upon a combination of research and strategies derived by coaches worldwide who use these very practices every day when leading either recreational athletes or some of the world’s elite to the pinnacle of human performance. Achieving success in the realm of fitness, sport (or human) performance is not only dependent on a deep understanding of the physiology and biomechanics of the human body, but also that of the mind, emotions, and behavioral economics. We may live in the age of technology, but people are not robots, and connecting with them is dependent on not only identifying and refining your own coaching and communication style, but learning
how to attune that with those that we lead.
