When I first joined chess, I was urged by many people to learn more about the game so I can teach my son. That idea never made much sense to me but I can understand where it comes from.
My experience on the internet and in construction disproves this assumption. Consider this. I became the Corporate director of a multi national company not because I knew everything about construction. Prior to that my biggest contract from my own construction company was only about 1/2 million. But you need to know something about construction so that people cant get away with rubbish but you dont need to know all. That is dumb. More important is to know how to form a team according to different strengths and knowledge base, and to recognise a dysfunctional team.
And very honestly, I am not internet savy. I only know how to get the contracts. But I know how to farm it out to the right experts to get the job done. I know how to evaluate and make judgement calls. And I know when the team is not working.
We need to learn to see the bigger picture. See the culture that is best to nurture our players and keep that end in sight as we are navigating. As I said before, seeing purely from the trainers perspective, the parents perspective is too limiting.
Seeing only from the technical perspective is too limited.
