CULTIVATING INDIVDUALITY AND CREATIVITY
When working with coaches we conduct an Individual Needs Analysis to determine their coaching philosophy. As we are keen to promote individuality and creativity within coaching we help coaches to explore and examine their personality, leadership style, and belief systems, so that they are able to understand better how these influence their relationships and effectiveness within a coaching context.
At Cultiv8 Academy we work with coaches, helping them to acknowledge and appreciate the difference between teaching athletes and helping them to learn. With effective communication and relationships coaches are able to create environments that balance teaching and learning opportunities. We at Cultiv8 Academy help coaches and athletes to co-create solutions to the challenges that arise within both training and competition environments.
"The work with Cultiv8 has really helped me to develop my coaching skills further. I have become much better at communicating and connecting with my players, understanding much more about why they do what they do. Understanding the psychology a bit more has definitely been a massive help to me in working with my players."

AWARENESS, UNDERSTANDING, AND IMPLEMENTATION
OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SKILLS
Coaches need to understand the key psychological skills that athletes require in order to reach peak performance. At Cultiv8 Academy we support coaches to embed mental skill development within the training environment. We work closely with coaches to create development pathways, taking into consideration the cognitive, physical, motivational, and emotional maturity of their athletes.
Coaches continually strive to create better learning environments for their athletes. To aid this process Cultiv8 Academy encourages coaches to challenge themselves and become more reflective in their practice. We help coaches to explore the types of feedback that they use and the methods that they employ to monitor and evaluate performance.
Whilst we know that a positive parent-coach relationship is key to productive youth sport experiences, coaches sometimes find it challenging to work collaboratively with parents. Cultiv8 Academy helps coaches to enhance their engagement with parents by developing support programmes which make explicit roles, responsibilities, and expectations. We also offer guidance to parents on how they can be optimally involved during the course of the athletic career. We strive to ensure that communication channels are clear and consistent between athlete, parent, and coach.
Let us help you to Cultiv8 your coaching skills. We want to be on your team.
