Coaching and supervision

WithJonathan Downie

A good coach might well take them to each hole and ask them to aim a little to the left or change their grip slightly. A better coach, however, would perhaps walk round as they play one hole and use their knowledge and expertise to suggest that they spend more time on the driving range or work on muscle conditioning or see a nutritionist. The first stage in coaching would be for interpreters to either find a practice buddy or to join a practice group. To ensure that humans stay ahead of the machines when it comes to interpreting, building a supervision-coaching combo could be a game changer. Anyone can talk or write a good game. Anyone with a smartphone can take a picture that makes them look successful.
