This certainly applies to PMTS coaches, however one thing that isn't stressed enough in the synthesis you linked is teaching the subject (in this case how to ski) vs. teaching the student how to learn [to ski]. Harald said something to me several years ago (maybe 3-4 at this point), that a good coach doesn't just teach someone to ski (e.g., to repeat movements). Rather a good coach teaches a student how to learn [to ski]. I thought that the difference was pretty insightful.
Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.

HeluvaSkier, this is great. Every ski instructor should strive to make this a part of every lesson.

Thank you for sharing. That model has been firmly in the left pocket of my coaching jacket for many years.
