Stephen Keese on coachability (from my email)


You wrote that sports often teaches students how to be a team member and coordinate with others.  True enough, but I think there is a more important educational benefit from sports that does not require team participation or competition nor risk injury. That is learning to be coachable.  Historically coaching was a fundamental part of higher education.  In English universities, coaches are called tutors.  Elsewhere they were/are known as mentors and guides,Being coachable or mentorable is one of the most valuable traits of students and adults, whether as a solo practitioner, group leader, or team member.
