Attend a coaching clinic or an informal gathering of basketball coaches and ask the question 'what three things give your teams the most difficulty?' Usually full court defensive pressure will be one of the three responses. 16 Simple Concepts to Improve Your Full Court Offense Against Pressing Defenses addresses some of the most common concerns of coaches including: -- how to get the ball to your best ball handler on the inbounds pass. -- selecting an effective alignment to inbounds the ball. -- how to get the opponent to stop pressing. -- how to create a way to not turnover the ball when the ball handler is trapped. This short book also covers why teams press and what the defense hopes to achieve by pressing. The objective of 16 Simple Concepts to Improve Your Full Court Offense Against Pressing Defenses is NOT to provide detailed press break offenses. Those can be scouted by the opponent and plans developed to defend a set play. Instead, the objective of this book is to teach principles that defeat pressing defenses, allowing the coach to develop his or her own flexible system of beating pressing defenses. Players who understand principles and do not rely on set plays are always able to adapt during games and take advantage of what the defense gives up. This book is meant to help coaches develop players who can adapt when faced with a full court pressing defense.
Education has embraced the coaching model as a framework for improving teaching and instruction. Yet, despite the popularity of the paradigm, there is little consensus around what educational coaching looks like in practice. To address this ambiguity, Coaching for Achievement considers several questions. What can we learn from coaches-especially successful athletic coaches-that can be applied in classroom instruction, educational leadership, collaboration, and professional development? How can educators assess and develop traits embodied by these successful coaches? What specific, practical tools will aid in this application? To answer these questions, this book will take you to a &quote;coaches' clinic,&quote; a gathering of the most effective athletic coaches in their respective fields. Using lessons learned from their successes (and failures), you will have the opportunity to develop your own game plan to use in your school or classroom.
Power Your Golf Game with Mental Skills for Golf by Jim Andrews, PhD is about Performance Psychology for Sports and Corporate Application. Performance Psychology studies the behavioral factors that influence and enhance performance in the sports and business competitive environment. It targets learning the skills and abilities for a player to achieve optimal performance, personal development, and well-being throughout his or her lifespan. Performance enhancement helps the coach, the team, or the organization and its leaders, managers, and teams. The Performance Psychology approach tailors assessment, skill training, implementation, and evaluation to individuals' or teams' specific needs. Implementation targets two main areas: Performance Management The skills to optimize one's own and others' performance in the competitive environment include: . Self-Confidence . Goal Setting . Motivation . Pressure Inoculation . Mental Rehearsal Self-Regulation The skills to regulate oneself, or to teach self-regulation to others, in a demanding environment. These skills include: . Self-Awareness . Stress Management . Thought Control . Attention/Concentration Control . Attitude Regulation . Anger Management Benefits Learn mental skills and strategies that refine, improve and enhance performance. Learn the mental skills and abilities to achieve optimal performance, personal development, and well-being throughout one's lifespan Samples of Individual Clinics Clinic One: Self-Confidence, Goal Setting and Motivation, and Designing Self-Confidence When self-confidence is lacking, everything is an effort. You doubt yourself; you hesitate, get frustrated, and get angry. Wouldn't it be nice to design self-confidence rather than let it be elusive? Clinic Two: Tension Management and Pressure Management There are optimal levels of tension necessary for peak performance: Too little tension creates a loss of focus; too much tension creates a narrowness of focus - and both types of tension are harmful to performance. Tension can be managed to produce the optimal level for peak performance. Clinic Three: Mental Rehearsal and Strategies Visualization has many forms and several uses. The best way to think about visualization? Use your imagination to 'Mentally Rehearse.' Mental rehearsal is the process where you imagine your shot in whatever way you can: an image, a feeling, or a thought. If you can use all three in the correct sequence (a 'Ritual Strategy'), it is most powerful. Use it to practice your swing in your head, pre- shot shaping, and desensitization to pressure situations. Practicing in your head requires a subjective mental rehearsal of your successful stroke and is 80% as effective as real practice. Clinic Four: Thought Control, Attention, and Concentration Control Imagine being on the first tee and saying to yourself, 'Don't hit it in the water.' The mind doesn't hear the negative ('don't'); instead, the mind hears only the outcome or the object. Therefore, you have to keep positive outcomes in mind, not only in your visualizations but also in your use of thoughts and especially language. This clinic teaches the use of positive outcomes in thoughts, language, and visualizations. Clinic Five: Surge and Recover through Self Coaching Self-coaching teaches you how to surge when you are in the zone and how to recover quickly when you are heading downward. It is the ability to catch the cues of moving into less-effective performance and to quickly recover to the optimal performance zone. What are the cues? They can be variations in muscle tension and breathing, thought and language usage, or changes in ritual strategies, visualization, and focus. You need to recover quickly when you catch the cues. Dr. Jim Andrews Clinics are available worldwide.
This work offers a summary of the book 'START WITH NO: The Negotiating Tools That the Pros Don't Want You to Know' by Jim Camp.Jim Camp is the founder of Coach2100 Inc., a coaching clinic for senior business managers and teams. He currently serves as a negotiation coach and runs negotiating clinics and group coaching sessions for more than 150 corporations.'We're all professional negotiators. Most of us don't think of ourselves that way, but we're all trying to make agreements every day. We're negotiating. Some of us do so haphazardly, maybe even lackadaisically, while some of us realize that since we're always negotiating, the more skillfully we do so, the better off we'll be.'In Start with No, Jim Camp explains why 'win-win' is the wrong approach in negotiations and why good negotiations always start with 'No'. Giving the other person an opportunity to say no right at the outset relieves the pressure and allows the other person to think more rationally which, in turn, increases the chances something worthwhile will result from the negotiation. Start with No is the key to becoming a better negotiator, from which point you can start approaching your true potential in business.
