Strengths based coaching- To begin coaching each individual from curiosity about what it is they value and are best at. Recognize their strengths and the opportunities to build on them and use them to achieve goals.
Creativity- To have no pre-conceived notions of how to help someone get better. There is no single system employed, rather unique solutions based on the challenges at hand. Holding strong to the belief that there is always another way to keep moving forward
Process Skill Development- There's a lot more to excellence than how you move in a pool. Learning itself encompasses many process skills that you can train and develop. Proper development of both athletes and coaches means conscious effort towards building these skills.
