Behaviour Bitesize Blog: 5.4 Learning

This series explores each of the identified coaching behaviours alongside the Principles of Great Coaching. In this blog, UK Coaching’s Craig Blain discusses the role that repetition plays in learning

Learning is one of the Great Coaching principles from UK Coaching. Both inwardly and outwardly, learning as the coach and creating environments in which you support the learning of others are both essential for helping people to achieve their full potential. 

Repetition isn’t necessarily about being repetitive:

  • Repetition is a critical component in learning. 
  • Repetition is a significant feature in skill acquisition and development.
  • Repetition is an essential characteristic of Great Coaching.
  • Repetition can take time.

Repetition isn’t necessarily about being repetitive.

Learning can be overt yet can also be something that happens without us consciously recognising it has taken place. As a learner, this could be due to our judgement being clouded over the passage of time or losing sight of where we started from as we take small incremental steps towards a goal.

One key behaviour of a great coach has been identified as their ability to manage people’s expectations, highlighting their progress over time.
