Effective questions...

Questions are used as a specific form of intervention

Questions are powerful in coaching because they trigger an internal search in athletes, so that they can shift perspective, discover information that has yet to be known, speculate & wonder at genuinely transformative steps they have to make

Types of questions.

Clarifying: clearing the way for deeper thinking

Reflective: encouraging the athlete to think & reflect

Summarising: checking the accuracy of the communication & maintain the focus in the conversation

Outcome: Commitment to action. Build on athletes positive strengths is more motivating than tackling weakness.
