dc.description.abstractRecent research on expertise in organisational contexts strongly indicates that coaching, mindset, and deliberate practice have a greater impact on achieving high levels of proficiency than innate talents. We examine the opportunity for service firms to adopt an athletic based approach to coaching, ensuring employees serving customers become service ‘experts’ and consistently deliver excellence. Highlighting 13 main coaching practice categories that exist in athletic and organisational coaching, we found that athletic coaching seems to use a wider range of coaching techniques. This investigation paves a way for service organisations to understand how they can best incorporate well-established athletic coaching practices into their businesses.en_US
