May Book of the Month

Try to recall the best coach you’ve ever had. Consider what differentiated them from other coaches; what made them so effective? Was it their knowledge and programming, or did it come down to the way they communicated with you and the way they made you feel? While the former are critical, it is the coach’s words—their language—that makes a stellar coach who stands out from the rest.

The Language of Coaching focuses on the impact that communication has on an individual’s ability to learn and  perform a movement. Written by performance coach Nick Winkelman, the book examines how instruction, feedback, and cueing can significantly affect training outcomes. Grounded in motor learning and the science of attentional focus, Winkelman seeks to provide practical coaching frameworks that are adaptable and evidence based.
