Summary

In the world of strength and conditioning, learning how to move others not just physically, but also psychologically and emotionally is paramount to getting the most out of them. People are the ultimate performance variable, and understanding how to effectively blend knowledge of proper training with the nuances of human behavior is integral to helping athletes achieve their ultimate goals. Unfortunately, while much attention has been given to the science of physical training, little attention has been given to the science of communication.

Conscious Coaching: The Art and Science of Building Buy-In bridges this gap. Listeners learn the foundational principles of improving relationships, enhancing engagement, and gaining the trust of athletes through targeted communication. And, every bit as important, listeners also learn concrete strategies to apply these principles in day-to-day coaching situations they will inevitably encounter.

The result is a game-changing book that has been used by professional sports teams, Fortune 500 companies, Universities, multinational coaching organizations and the United States Special Forces that sets the stage for coaches and leaders of all kinds to create a culture of success not only within sport, but also beyond. Conscious Coaching is a movement and its time has come.

Narration was distracting.

Very much enjoyed the book and found the material insightful and useful. I’m certain it will go far to improve my own coaching of my clients and the coaching of my staff.

I’ve only listened to a handful of audio books but am beginning to appreciate it more when the author reads the book her/himself. The character voices on this one were unnecessary and annoying at times.

I couldn't get past the narration...

I'm sure the book is good. I couldn't get past the narration. He spoke a if he was angry. Then over dramatic for the quotes. He rushed through it. There were some thought provoking things in there but he plowed through them.

Great insight on coaching, but also great tools to take inventory of yourself.

Highly recommend.

Excellent

I wasn’t expecting this book to be as good as it was. Probably the best coaching book Ive ever read. Even if you dont coach athletes, this is an incredible coaching book.

Coach Brett did his work

I have been following Coach Brett before I even got this book. He talked a lot about it on Instagram but I never cared because I don't actually read. Once I downloaded audible and realized his book is on here, I had to buy it. Reading this book has opened my mind to applying his principles not only in training but also in everyday life. Buy this book even if you're on the fence.

A book that doesn’t say much and is too general

The book is clearly about the author making himself look good. Over and over the author says that he coaches olympians and professional athletes but never mentions a name. All his examples of athletes are of individuals that did not succeed in sports. This book is clearly far from informative. I could put together by putting a bunch of quotes and summaries of studies.

This book is where all coaching begins

Excellent book, written in a very digestible way. If you are a coach of any sort, this book should be on your top list of resources.
