Remember, all the best sports people, and all the best classical musicians have a coach. Some even have several coaches, one for each aspect of their game.
Mark Hales has been racing at all levels for 36 years, during which time he has won nearly 200 races. For much of this time, he has also forged a parallel career as a motoring writer and author.
The racing has provided a great depth of experience as well as an opportunity to develop the complex mental tools which are essential to an understanding of the track driver’s art. Writing about it has given Mark the chance to develop effective communication techniques. The ability to express that understanding in an understandable and non-technical style
There are a great many good drivers and there are a great many good writers, but there are few who combine both skill sets. There are fewer still who know the difference between instruction and coaching.
How many times have you sat next to an instructor who says “do this, do that…” or worse, “don’t do this, don’t do that…” The student has little understanding of what he or she is being asked to do. Just that there is an instruction to do something – or not…
Mark does not provide instruction, he creates a learning partnership with the student. Once the student understands what they are trying to achieve, and more important, creates their own way to accomplish the task, they will own the knowledge. This is coaching.
The student knows the route and the thinking that produced the result. They are then able to use the strategy somewhere else.
You can be a better track driver, once you know why you do what you’re doing…
