It's not my student but is a great representation of why I love to coach.
The first solo is a big deal (first time without an instructor in the plane).
Ultimately, when someone has overcome their fears and has the confidence to move forward, the only way to have it really stick for them is to take the leap themselves. They can't be pushed.
You can "nudge in an encouraging way" or help them overcome fears. However, ultimately they have to take the final step themselves.
You simply cannot force a first solo to happen.
Agile Coaching isn't about creating change yourself. It needs to be about helping others to find the courage to make their own changes with your help and support.

getting ready for their first solo water landing.
It takes courage, trust and self-awareness. The job of the coach isn't to be their friend, but to help them reach their goals and objectives.
Most importantly.... It takes a coach who's joy is watching someone else feel this excited about themselves or their company.
Wow… Very emotional video for me!
