Intuition in Coaching: It's Not Magic
St. Pierre, Peter; Smith, Mark
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v27 n2 p37-42 2014
Many coaches have been called instinctive for decisions they have made, whether in game situations, recruiting, or other aspects of their job. Coaches often report having "gut feelings" before making important decisions. The purpose of this article is to dispel the notion of intuition as a magical ability, and begin to look at it as an important decision-making tool that can be cultivated. Through education and deliberate practice, coaches can become more intuitive.
