The teachable student

A recent picture of Yeovil manager Darren Way shows him with a poster listing the characteristics of “The Coachable Player.”

The Coachable Player

  • Humble
  • Respectful
  • Loves the game
  • Stays in control
  • Takes responsibility
  • Thinks long term
  • Keen to learn
  • Excited by change
  • Willing to try new things
  • Unafraid of mistakes
  • Trusts coaches

It strikes me that if you replace “coachable player” with “teachable student” then the list remains essentially unchanged.

Other things that should be on the list of characteristics of “the teachable student”?
