Arran Thorne

Arran uses his 21st century life coaching to help players at Spectrum basketball find a way to enjoy basketball. He helps players make their own individual conscious choices ... to sometimes follow, sometimes lead, sometimes go your own way. To sometimes choose to accept risk and sometimes reject risk. To sometimes choose to push through barriers, sometimes go round barriers, sometimes use barriers as a nudge to go in a different direction. Exciting futures come into view.

To make sure Arran doesn't force players always follow him and do as he says, Arran asks all the players he is coaching to hold him to account for practicing these 6 habits. 

Habits 1 to 3 are about listening. Practicing them make it harder for qualified life coaches to accidently make participants always follow them.

Habit 1: Tell others what to do only if they have asked us to do so. (We try to avoid assuming others will always want to know what we  think)

Habit 2: Recognise when others say stop, and stop. (We try to avoid finding ways to increase the pressure to make others do as we say).

Habit 3: When things are not going our way, we try to ask ourselves, what have we missed? (We try to avoid thinking we need to keep going ignoring what others say.)

Habits 3 to 6 help qualified life coaches to be kind.

Habit 4: We try to make choices to minimise the spread of badwill to ourselves and others. (We try to avoid giving more badwill back)

Habit 5: When things go wrong, we try to make choices to nudge ourselves to a better place where we feel less of a victim. (We try to avoid blaming others)

Habit 6: We try to make choices to give goodwill to ourselves and others. (We try to avoid always thinking, the greater good is always more important than our own self)
