At this point the intelligence, intuition and imagination of the coach become a valuable contribution - rather than being interference for the player."7inspiring – coaching is about helping the player to unlock his or her true potential through raising awareness, inspiring new ideas and encouraging creativity. energizing – coaching is about energizing the player through effective communication, soliciting suggestions, and building a can-do attitudefacilitating – implies that the player has the capacity to have an insight or creative idea and to think something through for himselfperformance – anything a coach says or does should be driven by the intention to improve performance, i.e. to achieve greater effectiveness or efficiency of the playerlearning – refers to a broader domain, how to approach a task or master a new technology; looking beyond immediate objectives, the future performance of the organization depends on learningdevelopment – refers to personal growth and greater self-awareness.7
