There’s a lot of talk about best practices when it comes to coaching children. But what about adults? What does the literature say? How do we optimize coaching for a more mature population?
Today, we are joined by Tiffany Peltier, a retired 22-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard and current coach and adult educator. In addition to tactics and strategies to optimize adult learning, we discuss:
- Experience, Emotion and Exposure (& other challenges of coaching adults)
- How to talk to / coach “thinkers” vs. “feelers”
- Using the Experiential Learning Cycle
- Navigating jargon and power dynamics in the military
Tiffany is also a Masters Pan-American and National Olympic Lifting record holder in both lifts and total. She’s been a personal trainer for over 18 years, and a fitness coach/adult educator for over 10 years. Having earned a plethora of certifications related to fitness, nutrition, and neurological studies, she is currently acting as a Neuro Performance specialist with Z-Health. Her Master’s research is in coaching adult athletes using adult learning principles.
