Behaviour Bitesize Blog: 6.3 Engaging

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 importance of creating varied activities and engaging with people with Mental Health Physiotherapist Paula Manning

Coaching has many synergies with other professions, including many within the health sector, such as physiotherapy, and comparatively speaking, some of the behaviours exhibited by great physios are the same as great coaches. This may well be due to a striking resemblance in the fundamental purpose of both roles, that being to keep people happy, healthy and active. 

Granted, people may choose to seek the support of a physio or a coach for different reasons, yet the approach taken bears many similarities, making the potential for a collaborative approach to supporting someone to return to and sustain an active lifestyle really promising. 

In coaching generally, the aspiration is to support people to develop and maintain a positive relationship with being active, or in playing a specific sport. Success could be defined through finding consistency, in that ‘people keep coming back’; whether that be simply repeat attendance, staying committed to a goal they have set, or achieving a level of balance for their overall well-being. 

This is achieved through providing #GreatCoaching experiences for the people we support.
