Why Games Coaching
Games Coaching is a different way to improve because its about getting a result in the uncontrollable parts of a game - and not about improving the ability to control the controllable - which is commonly done by many sports coaches.
- Competitive games are won by how we deal with the uncontrollable parts of the game.
- The important parts of life happen in the uncontrollable.
This is why it's a good idea to play games with a Games Coach and learn to be less anxious when we can't control what is happening and relax into agile, fluid, creative, joyful, entertaining, flowing thinkers and movers who find different ways to get different results - before the uncontrollable gets out of hand.
How Games Coaching works
Games Coaching is about giving players experiences of using their fluid thinking to get a result in a game they can't control. Games Coaches generate a dynamic set of obstacles that impact what players want to do. Players are stopped from trying to control the obstacles - and helped to lift themselves out of the detail - to see the wider context - the bigger picture of what is going on around them - and flow through the space between obstacles to discover different ways to get different results when nobody knows what is going happen - before the uncontrollable gets out of hand.
We are diverse, not inclusive
Games Coaching is about creating a hard to control games space. This is achieved by having a diverse range of players in terms of age and ability, with pay-as-you-go to ensure different players turn up each week, to try different ways to combine their diverse range of abilities to do more than we all imagine. Only those who always seek to control are excluded. We are diverse, not inclusive. It's why we have no trials, no squads, and no leagues. We play for the joy of improving our ability to think in a fluid way.
The one guiding principle - be kind
The principle of 'being kind' lowers any anxiety we have about not being in control of what is happening which makes it easier to relax into being agile, fluid, creative, joyful, entertaining, flowing thinkers and movers able to get a result in the uncontrollable before the uncontrollable gets out of hand.
There are 3 ways many of us try to control others, which Games Coaching stops.
1. We use superior knowledge of the details to make others do as we say.
2. We control who is seen to be the weakest by choosing who to blame.
3. We use the fact we are bigger, stronger, and faster to make others do what we want them to do.
What the players say
"They are fun. They are stress free. Jon - has a way of teaching that I don't feel I am are being told what to do. I am encouraged to make my own choices and then supported with the decisions I make. There is no wrong decision. Only learning opportunities. Jon always finds a way to make feedback constructive and positive to help me make my own evaluations about my performance and how I can improve. He is supportive while pushing you to always be better and reach maximum potential".
