This week, The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome Sarah McQuade and Linda Low on the show! Linda and Sarah are both coach development consultants based in the United States with a wealth of international expertise committed to develop excellence in coaching. Our discussion this week focuses on the "Coach Developer," and who or what that person and role looks like. Oftentimes traditional clubs have coaches, a director of coaching, and an executive or technical director. The role of coach education and staff development can fall to several different people with various hats to wear. On today's show we delve into the importance of the Coach Developer role and how it is now starting to emerge in clubs and organizations. We discuss how clubs can start this process, as well as how coach developers can best implement their ideas and create buy-in when working with their coaching staff. It is a great chat for all to start thinking on who currently is the coach developer in their club or organization, and how they might start to more clearly embody that role within their environment. Make sure you check out Sarah and Linda's work by visiting their website ETC Coaching Consultants (where you can also find email contact information.
