I have the pleasure of speaking with Aaron O'Connell in this episode. Aaron has been coaching basketball for over 30 years.
Formerly a business entrepreneur, Aaron describes himself as a continuous learner having completed a Masters in Applied Sport Psychology and currently undertaking a Masters in Applied Coaching.
We speak about having a coaching philosophy of putting the individual first; building self-awareness as a coach in order to help players; asking players for feedback; reflection; growth mindset; taking the pressure off younger players; team identity and Aaron gives some fantastic ideas to help players develop as people and as players.
