That there’s some kind of a continuum, that they’re mutually exclusive? How are they different? What makes them different?” – The Last Word
In sports management, there are three forms of coaching, called Coach, Student/Teacher, and Team. The three types of coaching differ in their approach. Coach coaching is considered the most effective style of coaching. It focuses on the work of the coach and his relationships with his players in ways that are more effective for the student/teacher and the team as a whole. Students want to feel they are in charge of their own behavior. They want to feel that someone has given them the knowledge and power to solve a problem. The student/teacher knows that if the coach can help them make the necessary progress on the project and have the resources to get them past the tough parts of any task, then they’ll be in a good position to move on to the next project. To help the student/teacher to understand the value of the coach’s guidance, the coach should also give them clear instructions about the project. The student/teacher should understand why and how the coach is teaching them. If the student/teacher does not understand that, coach coaching isn’t effective coaching. In some cases, student/teacher coaching is more effective than coach coaching because the coach’s knowledge and work with players, along with team leadership, enables the student/teacher to understand better the value and importance of the project on which the student/teacher is working.
S/T coaching focuses solely on training the student or teacher. The student or teacher is only given a limited amount of specific instructions on what to do and where. The S/T coaching does not provide a specific direction, nor does it provide the ability to help the student or teacher develop a personal vision for their projects. Instead, S/T coaching is based on the student or teacher’s knowledge, abilities, and motivation. The S/T coaching provides an opportunity for the student/teacher to become more aware of their talents, interests, and capabilities.
The third type of coaching is Team coaching. Team coaching is based on the student/teacher and the student team. The task that the student/teacher is assigned must be a team-oriented task. Team coaching is more effective for teams than those that only involve student/teachers.
