Personal Learning Coach:

Master your learning to accelerate your career and improve your team’s performances.

Learning defines your adaptivity.

Master cutting-edge coaching skills and you can translate them into better performances and successes.

  • Struggle with learning and you may risk working around the clock and fail, and even burnout.

Adaptivity sets up your expertise.

Adapt rapidly your coaching to new generations and you’ll always be a leader. Adapt rapidly your system of play and you’ll always be at the top your league. This ability to adapt depends on your ability to learn.

  • Your ability to adapt depends on your ability to learn. Struggle with adaptivity and you may become obsolete.

Expertise defines your coaching

Update your knowledge and your skills so that you are successful over time. Being an expert in 2018 does not require the same knowledge and the same skills as being an expert in 2020.

  • If you do not accept the reality that you have to update your knowledge consistently, you risk not being able to succeed over time and fade away quite rapidly.

Learning to learn

will help you achieve your potential

Accelerate your career and become indispensable.

Imagine being able to quickly learn whatever your work throws at you.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you feel in control. You get to work with exciting teams at the top of your league. You can end each day satisfied because you are great at this.

Rather than being behind or following the curve, you are maintaining your competitive edge and staying ahead of the curve.

Sometimes I don’t feel like a good leader

Did a group of athlete make you doubt about your leadership skills? It’s something common in coaching. Acquire the knowledge to better understand your team’s dynamic and the impact of your behaviours will help you get through the tough times.

Every coach has unique challenges. I can’t erase those. But I can equip you with the best possible tools to face them.

I can’t stay up to date with everything.

The number of studies in sports science keeps increasing. International coaching best practices are constantly evolving. Our work is to guide you in this abundance of information. By working with us, you will be able to benefit from the latest insights shared by world-leading experts, researchers in the field of coaching, AND get individualized support adapted to your reality.

We’ve experience the value of learning to learn firsthand. By changing our perspective of learning and our methods, we have coached teams successfully at the university and international level while teaching several university courses and coach more than 50 high-performance coaches over the last three years

If you feel like you can’t keep up, you first have to slow down and stop running in the wrong direction.

Coach learning is our passion.
We want it to be yours too.

Over the last decade, we’ve tackled various learning challenges. The goal of our work isn’t just to try to understand coaching and learning from research, but to help coaches be better at what they do.

Coach learning is our passion and we want to take the years of experiments and research we’ve done and share it with you so that you can improve your ability to learn, to adapt, and to succeed.

We are introducing: A PERSONAL LEARNING COACH

The personal learning coach’s optimal package is a one-year program to help you learn more effectively, quickly and deeply. One of our coaches will give you a strategy for attacking your professional development and translate that into concrete changes with your team.

Who is a Personal Learning Coach for?

Working with Coach Frank is like working with a super GPS by your side. He guides you towards tangible, efficient, original and innovative solutions. The arrival of GPS has revolutionized the way we get to our destination, and so has Coach Frank's expertise. His intelligence, his sharpness of mind will make you create something unique and special. Coach Frank was able to clarify my ideas, reorganize them to create a whole, consistent with the vision I had of my coaching.

Jean-Vincent Posy-Audette

Former Assistant-Coach with the Montreal Alouettes

The 12-month coaching was positive. I think Frank is excellent at being flexible and to adapt to what I needed. I could tell him that it was not going well with the club, and then we would work on leadership or annual planning. It was really beneficial because it was about “What’s important now?

For High-Performance Coaches
(professional sport, national team)

Performance Coaching is well suited for professional, national, and university coaches. The format of the coaching will teach you how to break down content from any source into simple actions you can take to coach your athletes better.

The program is focused on you, the learner. It’s not about my knowledge, it’s about your knowledge, how you can increase it, and apply it in your coaching. We’ll co-create it together.

It was great to have access to a performance coach that helped me with my communication strategies and my planning. My coach provided open perspectives and outside the box thinking. It supported me in my professional development, to always be learning and growing as a coach. I personnally found Coach Frank very helpful.

As published in the International Sport Coaching Journal in 2019 :

This coaching approach made me realize that I have to do more than diplomas. It happened so organically, that is what makes this approach great. […] We win a gold medal for the first time, I do not think this was a coincidence.

Jennifer Boyd

Assistant-Coach, Women's 15 Rugby - Team Canada

For High-Performance Directors

The program isn’t restricted to coaches. If you need to learn a lot to keep up with your work and you varied staff, this program is for you. The focus is on acquiring skills that matter so that you can better mentor and supervisor your staff.

Because directors often have more projects to participate in and more meetings to attend, knowing how to learn efficiently is even more important. Performance Coaching will give you tools and strategies to keep up with the cutting edge of your field, learn new skills as you need them.

Better Sport's coaches will help you reach your goals. Their scientific knowledge paired with their energy and passion for sports, athlete development, and coach education are key ingredients for success. They have been helping numerous organizations over the years and continue to innovate and create new approaches. If your organization is looking to emerge and embark in the creation of a different paradigm for sports and how coaches can better perform, they have the person you need.

As a high-performance coach, Frank has a unique profile. He is knowledgeable both in coaching and learning sciences with practical knowledge gained from his coaching experience. Curious by nature, he keeps himself up to date through his contacts around the world and his access to original research. Having worked with Frank on several occasions, I can say that he is very rigorous and knows how to create a climate of trust with coaches and then co-create new solutions in complete confidentiality.
