How To Coach The Uncoachables


What Gold Medals Are Made Of

So, how can you coach the un-coachables?

What are the un-coachables? The un-coachables are eight factors which you will not find in any coaching text book. You will not learn about them in any coaching course. You cannot research them on Google and you can’t do a PhD on them. They are not tested for in talent id programs and no one has found a piece of equipment to measure them, but their impact on performance is immeasurable. Their role in success unparalleled. Their place in excellence unmatched. Their effect on winning unsurpassed.

The un-coachables are:

  1. Desire
  2. Desperation
  3. Hunger for success
  4. Determination
  5. Resilience
  6. Passion
  7. Motivation
  8. Unbreakable self-confidence

    Of course you can – and these are NOT “uncoachables.” Mental skills training.
