Today we have a wonderful guest and a legend of the skill acquisition world. Professor Keith Davids from Sheffield Hallam University is a pioneer in the field of learning skills.

Keith was very generous with his time and we covered a wide range of coaching topics from multiple perspectives.


What gets in the way of effective coaching?

Why are we not getting the results we desire?

What are some of the limitations of coaching with an expert model?

The use and misuse of technology


We looked at how coaches can begin to look at their delivery in a new way and create ideal learning environments.


How to set up truly effective sessions to facilitate learning and development.

How we need to develop more flexible models than just step by step rote coaching.

We look from a learners perspective and how you need as a learner to take charge and ownership of your development.

How you need to be more open minded about your approaches and how the element of failure is an integral part of development.

We look at team environments and question the efficacy of ‘team talks’

How the ALL BLACKS do it differently and a potential revolution in team coaching


We look at parents and how you can be the best possible support for your son or daughter to give them the best possible chance of future development


Professor Keith Davids is Professor of Motor Learning at the Centre for Sports Engineering Research (CSER), where he leads the Skill Acquisition theme. His research programme in ecological dynamics investigates constraints on coordination tendencies in athletes and sports teams classed as nonlinear dynamical systems. Ideas from ecological psychology and nonlinear dynamics have been integrated into a Nonlinear Pedagogy. His research seeks to investigate affordances as constraints on emergent coordination tendencies in athletes and sports teams. In addition to his research Keith supervises several UK based and international doctoral students. Keith is also a journal and grant reviewer for several national and international publishing companies and organisations, and contributes to the MSc Human Factors in Sports Engineering module.
