Coachability: Do you have it?

Coachability is one of the hallmarks of great athletes throughout the ages. Every great athlete and every great team to ever step onto the field of battle has had a coach behind them: pulling strings, tweaking technique and strategy, holding the athlete or team accountable for greatness.

The question is: Are you coachable?

Do you listen? Do you apply feedback in the moment? Are you willing to do what is asked of you to reach your goals?

Your coach may not always be right. That is not the point! The point is that whether or not your coach is right or wrong, they have your best interest at heart. They have a great well of knowledge and are eager to share what they know with you. Test and retest. If it is working -- then it is working. Follow the path they set out for you and trust in the method and sometime, the madness.
