We reached out to see how things went - the good, the challenging - and everything in between.
THB Coaching Director, Dynamite Dan shared his whakaaro after the course had wrapped up.
In his own words;
Lots of energy and enthusiasm with loads of fun and learning was achieved by a group of experienced coaches in attendance for the 1st of 2 Foundation level practical courses we have planned for Ngati Kahungunu this year..
Well done coaches!
Our future in Hawkes Bay looks very promising if this is anything to go by!
5 key points from myself I wanted to achieve were:
1. Deliver all contents with confidence and clarity.
2. Nail the key messages/outcomes of each one.
3. Keep to the time schedule.
4. Use effective push/pull technique.
5. Bring lots of positive energy to the lesson.
Work on's would include:
1. 20/80.. not 80/20! :/
2. Started late. Waited for 6 non shows! (15min)
3. ACC/AWHI component.
Nevertheless, very pleased with my first delivery and definitely want to do more in the future!
Feedback from participants were:
1. Course was fun and engaging.
2. Mateship amongst coaches amazing.
3. All were excited and glad they attended.
4. Regardless of experience, all were able to take away new tools and learning.
5. Removing of financial barriers were key factor in having 2 participants attending.
Lastly, on behalf of myself and the THB Coaching community we would like to acknowledge the AWHI and TAUTOKO shown by Riki Enosa of Counties Manukau who travelled all the way from Auckland the morning of our course to support our team. His knowledge and input was invaluable but more importantly, his assistance and reassurance gave me the self confidence and belief that I can do this!!
Thank you very much Riki.
Naku noa, na Daniel de Thierry.
