The behaviour of a coach. It is a function of a coach's own characteristics, such as personality, ability, and experience, as well as the influences of the situation in which a coach operates. There are many styles of coaching behaviour, including training and instruction behaviour, democratic behaviour, autocratic behaviour, social support behaviour, and rewarding behaviour. A coach may use one type of behaviour exclusively, but is more likely to use different styles for different situations and individuals.
