An Indianapolis training company recently highlighted an article about mistakes. Their tagline: Focus on Observed Errors to Make Training Efficient.
The article comes courtesy of 1st Class Training. The author notes:
Where previous instructors had focused on trying to teach me a systematic and comprehensive approach to the game, Rick took a different tack: He observed my current performance, identified the one the mistake I was making that was causing me the most trouble, made the simplest possible correction to eliminate that mistake, and repeated the cycle. The lesson was incredibly efficient because we spent time working only on those things that would have the biggest possible positive impact on my game.
It’s not really a surprise that looking at errors is a great way to coach. Once again, Failure is the secret to success. We need to study what we are doing wrong to figure out how to do it right.
