Rugby Coach Edd Conway did his Masters thesis on the subject of Coaching Philosophy.
It’s a phrase that is often heard in conversations with coaches or about coaching. But what does it mean? What is a coaching philosophy?
As Edd found when writing his thesis, the answer isn’t as simple as it might seem. In this conversation, we discuss whether a coaching philosophy is ‘a thing’, what the difference is between a coaching practice and coaching philosophy, and how coaches might benefit from learning more about philosophical thinking and concepts.
