Coachable vs Compliant

Is there a difference between coachable and compliant?

I ask athletes if they consider themselves coachable and they say, "YES!"

I ask coaches if their athletes are coachable and they say, "YES!"

Then I watch and I listen.

I see compliance. I hear compliance.

I see robots who are programmed to do exactly as they are told.

I hear only one voice, and it's not the athletes'.

Let's not confuse coachable with compliant.

This 2 minute video explains what I mean.
