The Coaching Code
Hosted by: Coach Reed
“Discovering what it means to coach. Unlocking what it takes to be a great one.”
Transformational coaching, the kind that impacts lives well beyond the game, relies on way more than the simple hardware of genetics or X’s and O’s to succeed. It requires coaches to learn the software of the athlete first in order to elicit peak performance on and off the field. To accomplish this coaches need to connect more deeply, communicate more effectively, build values-driven warrior cultures, develop that unrelenting mindset of a champion, and much more. So what are those pieces of the code that we are missing?
In this show, each episode will unlock another piece of The Coaching Code to help coaches excel at what they do. From other fields, other disciplines, and those change agents at the edge of coaching evolution, we will seek to unlock it, understand it, and apply it to our daily coaching.
You can google the hard skills, but you have to talk to the experts to learn the soft skills of coaching, and Coach Reed has 2 Masters degrees and his finger on the pulse of cutting edge research in the areas that matter most for coaching. This is the right place if you want to learn what it means to coach kids and want to unlock the code that makes you a GREAT coach.
About Coach Reed
With nearly 30 years of experience as an educator/coach and two masters degrees (one in sport psychology and one in Early Childhood Education), Coach Reed has a wealth of practical experience and scientific research that he draws on to help athletes, coaches, and parents find more effective ways to navigate and succeed in the youth sport environment.
Since the release of his 2015 TEDx talk “Echoes Beyond the Game”, he has become a trusted educator, advisor, and speaker to sports organizations all over the globe.
He’s had the honor to work with sports organizations ranging from grassroots to elite level helping them become more effective at performance-based communication, building Champion cultures, and creating Warrior mindsets to succeed in and beyond the game. He is a firm believer that success in sport can indicate success in life, but how we measure success needs to change. Youth sport’s role is to develop excellent people with valuable life skills and strong values and to do that coaches need to be equipped with more than the ability to show X’s and O’s.
