Coaching your spouse: is it possible?

148 views

Published on

It is considered that even harder than coaching a parent is coaching a spouse (a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc). Actually, hard enough to be considered a taboo question. A couple is ideally a partnership of two people, but a lot has been written about the many (some of which, unavoidable) conflict situations it develops. A few specialists and scholars claim competition is inevitable, although this is by no means consensus. Some level of dispute, though, will be there. Is it possible, within this context, to develop productive athletic coaching relations? If so, how?
We invited a few people who succeeded there to share their experience.
