Tamsin is a passionate coach, with a deep appreciation for the influence honesty can have on team dynamics and performance. In this interview she talks about;
Good team cultures are always evolving and changing so they are difficult to describe, but they are the places you want to be, even if you have had your worst day.
Helping an athlete build self-confidence requires you to first understand what is causing their self-doubt; and then working with them on a method to improve it that is tailored to their needs.
The importance of self-reflection to be honest with yourself about the things you are good and not so good at.
How the great coaches develop a culture where honest communication is a central behaviour.
