Playing the Inner Game of Training
· Tim Gallwey
President and Founder, The Inner Game; Author, The Inner Game series

As he worked with a tennis client one day many years ago, Tim Gallwey realized he was more committed to his own teaching than to his student's learning. "What do you think would happen if you didn't teach so much?" he asked himself. "Think some learning would happen if you didn't teach?" Sure enough, when Gallwey stopped telling his student what, when and how to play, his student's tennis game improved. Moral: The real teacher is experience, not the coach or trainer. Learn the rules of the inner game of training and coaching from one of its acknowledged masters.
