Meaningful Sport – Dr Colum Cronin (Pt1) | Being a Coach | Phenomenology | Care | Teaching | Meaningful Work
What does it mean to be a coach? How does phenomenology help us understand what coaching is about? This exciting episode focuses on uncovering the essences of sport coaching.
Additionally, we explore the different types of caring and how they manifest in a coaching context. And finally, we ask questions about what meaningful work might look like in coaching.
