Coaching Athletes to Be Their Best

Posted 06.12.2019

The measure of a great coach is bringing the best out of athletes.

We were very impressed by this book which we were sent to review.

This first guide to motivational interviewing (MI)—the proven approach to harnessing the power of conversations to build relationships and trust—for sports coaches, psychologists, S&C and rehab specialists and other staff.

Revealing why conventional ways of giving feedback and addressing conflict are often counterproductive, the book presents tried-and-tested methods for getting through to athletes and helping them to thrive.

Leading sport psychologists and MI experts—including MI co-founder Stephen Rollnick—provide effective strategies to fire up motivation, promote ownership of personal goals, address problem behaviour on and off the field, enhance performance and improve teamwork.

Included are step-by-step examples and inspiring stories from coaches at all levels.

Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the book’s reproducible quick-reference sheets on key MI skills.
