Subjective Beliefs among Sport Coaches about Communication during Coach-Athlete Conversations (pp. 229-250) $45.00
Authors:  Frode Moen and Ragnvald Kvalsund
Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to explore subjective beliefs among coaches in elite
sports about what they think are effective communication during performance appraisals
with their athletes. A Q-sample of 36 different opinions about different underlying aims
for communication, and how this affects athletesí abilities to understand better
(knowing), to perform better (doing), and/ or improve their focus, were presented to sport
coaches from different top level sports. A sample of statements drawn from the actual
concourse of communication was presented to 19 elite coaches who were asked to
consider and rank-order the statements regarding performance appraisals through Qsorting
procedure.
The authors will discuss their analysis using Q methodology, where a three factors
solution was chosen from the factor analysis. In general, the coaches share some common
viewpoints across the three factors (consensus), and believe that the communication
process should be aimed at stimulating both coachesí and their athletesí understanding
about their performances. Attending behaviour such as the ability to ask their athletes
open questions and listen to what they are saying seems to be a necessity for coaches
during performance appraisals. Interestingly, the importance of instructive behaviour is
also emphasized among two of the three factors.
