Coaching: Staying motivated in winter

It’s now deepest, darkest winter; a time when many of us are putting our coaching on hold until the spring. It’s good to take some time to recharge your batteries, however you don’t need to wait until the lighter days to get back into coaching.

Continuous professional development: Take your coaching further

Just like the best riders, effective coaches constantly strive for personal improvement. To do this requires specific and deliberate practice, which is where Continuous Professional Development (CPD) comes in.
