Inside Story: The Value of Self-awareness as a Tool for Improvement

A little introspection can go a long way. By exploring your emotions and understanding your inner self, you WILL improve your coaching. Catherine Baker spoke to Blake Richardson about the numerous benefits of practising self-awareness and getting that valuable ‘insider knowledge’

Every coach should strive to be habitually self-aware. I’m not going to pull any punches here; failing to do so will harm your development.

That is a bold statement. But practising self-awareness really can be the difference between being a good coach and a great coach.
