The Language of Coaching : The Art & Science of Teaching Movement
by Nick Winkelman




Overview -
Try to recall the best coach you've ever had. Consider what differentiated them from other coaches; what made them so effective? Was it their knowledge and programming, or did it come down to the way they communicated with you and the way they made you feel? While the former are critical, it is a coach's words that set them apart from the rest.

The Language of Coaching focuses on the impact that communication has on an individual's ability to learn and perform a movement. Written by performance coach Nick Winkelman, the book examines how instruction, feedback, and cueing can significantly affect training outcomes. Grounded in motor learning and the science of attentional focus, Winkelman takes you on a journey, guiding you through practical coaching frameworks that will help you adapt your language to the learning needs of those you support.

Packed with stunning visuals, the book provides over 25 movement sequences that outline different types of coaching cues, including a visual depiction of unique analogies, such as a sprinter taking off like a jet or an athlete loading into a jump like a spring. The book is filled with a comprehensive collection of cueing frameworks that guide you through the process of creating your own cues for any movement you want to teach. You will also learn how to engage in more productive conversation with your athletes through sample dialogue that uses the book's cueing philosophy.

Whether you are new to coaching or a seasoned veteran, The Language of Coaching will help you grow as a communicator and learn how to coach the person with the same precision as you do the program.

CE exam available For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. The Language of Coaching Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of The Language of Coaching With CE Exam package, which includes both the book and the exam.
