An article by Doug Cooper October 2017
Wouldn’t the world be a boring place if we were all the same, luckily for us the world is not like that – it is in fact quite the opposite. This is obvious for all to see, because in everything we do we are all very different. To all of us who coach this is also very obvious, our learners in front of us will all be learning in slightly different ways to different things. I would suggest that for a coach to be able to ‘notice’ how our learners are learning and then be able to ‘respond’ in what they do to support this is a critical, yet very challenging skill. So ‘how’ do our learners learn, ‘how’ should we respond as coaches and ‘why’ are they all so different!
