Today we welcome back a great friend of the podcast Markus Westerburg to share more of his vast experience in the coaching arena.
Markus is a very deep thinker about the game and has a vast array of first hand experience based on real world experience.
We talk about the ‘coaching trap’ and how information overload can be so destructive
How the ego can affect coaching and how seductive the sense of being a ‘guru’ can be
How wanting the student to do well so badly can actually detrimentally affect the outcomes
Markus is an expert on creating ‘Learning Environments’ and he shares his ideas on how a learning environment can be set up to transform learning
This way the STUDENT is centre stage and not the coach
How the greatest weapon in the effective teaching toolkit is EFFECTIVE QUESTIONS
How questions can actually draw out learning from the student as opposed to the coach imposing his or her model of how they perceive it should be done
No assuming as a coach that you ‘know’ the right way for a player to make a golf swing or putting stroke
How the ability to ‘stay out’ of the process can be greatly beneficial
Organising movement to suit YOU as a unique individual
How extremes can be great for you game
How to neutralize your golf swing to keep it in balance
How to TRAP the correct feeling
Changing the fundamental question from ‘what is wrong with my swing to what do I need to DO with my shots’
The 9 shot drill and how this can completely change the way you play the game.
