Behaviour Bitesize Blog: 4.4 Positive

This series explores each of the identified coaching behaviours alongside the Principles of Great Coaching. In this blog, Craig Blain discusses recognition and appreciation in a coaching environment and how they might contribute to a positive experience

Creating a positive environment for the people taking part in your sessions is essential. This requires consideration of several different factors, including recognition and appreciation.

Celebrating people’s endeavours and encouraging them to recognise and appreciate one another – whether in team or individual sports – are two great ways to ensure that everyone engaged in your coaching sessions helps to support a positive environment. 

Recognition and appreciation are words often used interchangeably. But while they’re both important, there’s a big difference between them. In a coaching context, where we are looking to create environments in which people can thrive, it’s important to understand the distinction.
