Do you measure the wrong success criteria?

in Round-up Rodeo with Phil Llewellyn, Rugby coaching

In Episode 72, Sam Larner raises some excellent points about how we as coaches of teams measure the success of elements within the game. His example is why do we continually kick to the corner from a penalty when our lineout may not be consistently good enough to make the most of this opportunity. This got me thinking about "resulting" which is discussed by Annie Duke in Episode 37 of The Knowledge Project podcast titled Getting Better by Being Wrong. Resulting is judging the result only on it's outcomes, not on the merits of the decision making processes by which you made it. MORE

in Round-up Rodeo with Phil Llewellyn, Rugby coaching

From my Roundup Rodeo podcast with Alison Payne and Gary Laybourne discuss what is really at the heart of coaching: how do we engage, work with, support and manage people. It is often an incredibly easy thing to state when talking about coaching but, as Alison highlights, it can actually be one of the most difficult things to achieve. We all have a very limited window as coaches as we need to ensure we maximise that as best we can. Here are four ways to solve this sticky problem: MORE
