On coaching...

The Indian cricket teams recent experience with Greg Chappel will fit into this post by Seth Godin, very aptly, on "coachability". All almost all of his observations, seems to fit right there. Now if somebody showed this to the BCCI and to our stars - are they still sportspersons, much like some Bollywood actors are farmers?

Symptoms of uncoachability:

Challenging the credentials of the coach
Announcing that you're being unfairly singled out
Pointing out, angrily, that the last few times, the coach was wrong
Identifying others who have succeeded without ever being coached
Resisting a path merely because it was one identified by a coach
