Me teaching math. Unfortunately figuring this out 16 years into the profession....Sometimes people who are elite in an area aren’t great with development or patience in that area because they were so good, they don’t understand why others can’t do what they did.
The best coaches I’ve had were middle of the pack players - not super talented. I think there is something to be said about natural talent creating a disconnect between your average joe.True. I also have seen, quite often, that an athlete who excels at a sport may have little teaching or coaching talents for that sport.
