Why Teesra Talks?
I started theteesra.com, my cricket coaching blog, back in 2009, as a place to sketch out my ideas on coaching best practice.
I set myself a simple quality rule – nothing gets posted until it has been thought through, and can be presented in a (mostly) coherent text.
I have found that the discipline of writing helps me to marshal my thinking on a topic — on more than one occasion, I have reached a different conclusion in the blog to my initial starting position!
So why Teesra Talks, now?
The written blog is a strong discipline to maintain (and I shall still be posting) but it can take time to pull together a post.
So, Teesra Talks will be more like an audio diary, where I can reflect on coaching sessions & programmes more spontaneously.
Teesra Talks will be an “occasional” series – maybe once a week, hopefully at least once a month.
What to expect
Short monologues on recent (or not so recent) coaching sessions.
I shall probably follow the 3-point questioning that I first came across in a sports psychology workshop delivered by Dan Abrahams:
- “what went well?”
- “what could have gone better?”
- “what can we do between now and the next session to be even better next time?”
