Michael Paveley
Considers coaching to be using his knowledge, experience and observations to help participants to progressively improve their performance and achieve their goals, he is a coach because he enjoys using his knowledge & experiences in this way. He has been fortunate to receive training from many experienced and talented coaches, in particular, the international dressage judge and trainer Pat Manning FBHS who had a major influence on him, she had a great depth of knowledge and patience and was as enthusiastic coaching simple skills as she was the more advanced ones. He would always hope the participants he coaches enjoy their sport and gain confidence and improve their skill level through that enjoyment. The participants he coaches hold the power as only their achievements and enjoyment can measure my success as a coach. He uses patience together with knowledge and acquired coaching methods to help participants understand the information and perform the skills required in order to help them achieve those goals.
