The Coaching Process, soft skills and fine beanies today.

Inside today, yet fine outside! But inside was more appropriate for the specific aims of the day. I was working with the second year Adventure Tourism Management degree students form UHI, West Highland College today. The aims of the day were very focused. How do we coach the specific skills of climbing? It was a cerebral day with much analysis  reviewing and discussion of each of the students sessions. I think everyone went away perhaps with more questions and certainly their open minds and sponge like brains were filling up with a variety of ways of running sessions. It was excellent to coach rather than instruct today. A raw day outside and getting colder. Better wrap up as tomorrow I am working on an over night snow holing expedition!
