Coach Educators and Tutors
Personal Access To Soccer Expertise From Professional Coaches World Wide.
Pro Soccer Mentor personal coaching is a conversation, a partnership that is solution focused, creative and goal oriented. It is about knowing where you are, in any/all areas of your coaching pathway and development , and knowing where you want to be, then bridging the gap through goal setting and specific coaching models. These strategies motivate, enlighten, inspire and challenge you to discover the best for yourself in any given situation – supporting you to unleash your full potential.
Your Personal Tutor/mentor enable you to experience, explore, discover, recover and be challenged into a thinking space that is advanced and rich in pure potentiality for your progress – Key questioning techniques enable you to understand your own thoughts, free from the influence of others’ opinions. Tutoring also clarifies a vision or mission statement; it gets to the heart or root of a matter, and creates a new pathway for new action and effective results – therefore developing a strong personal foundation to embrace the present, and gradually work towards what you really want.
Strengths of Personal Coaching are diversity of strategy, questioning techniques, motivation and inspiration for authentic action. Personal Coaching enables you to work things out through processes that enable you to evolve and develop, through your own experience and self-awareness with professional guidance.
