COACHING TIPS FOR THE COACH/TRAINER

Newton may not have had emotions in mind when he came up with his third law of motion, which states ''For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.''

And unfortunately, unlike the laws of nature, this assessment may have a different answer for each person involved.
