Perhaps you are wondering what the key difference is between a non-linear understanding of learning and a traditional „if-then“ teaching.
The questions from (insecure) participants in my lectures and practical demonstrations often went in the direction: „How do I mediate/teach the right technique, if I only work implicitly as coach?“.
These questions made it clear that a non-linear and implicit understanding of teaching and learning is a completely different point of view for the coach (see chart). In contrast to the traditional methodology, in which the view of the coach is directed towards the development of the „right technique“, the coach in a non-linear setting trusts in the ability of the biological system „human being“ to self-directed development of situation-adapted (technical) solutions.
