Engaging the least active: putting what people want from coaching into practice

Wednesday 8th May 16:00 - 16:30

Great coaching is all about putting people first. Listening to the wants and need of people is key to creating the experiences they want from coaching – therefore supporting them to change behaviours and create healthy habits. Research shows that coached participants are more likely to engage in physical activity and sport for longer periods, take part in a more diverse range of activities and have higher satisfaction levels from being active with a coach’s support.

With first hand experiences this session will showcase the latest insight to help you understand how behaviours could be used to enhance your ability to ‘get the right people’ in coaching roles and provide great coaching experiences for everyone.
