CAT Coaching: Does it make a difference?

cat preparation

We understand why a school football team has a coach. Or why we send a kid to a tennis or a chess coaching academy. There is a need to learn the basics in both these cases – as could be in case of a majority of CAT coaching takers.

Beyond the Basics:

Pause here and think- why do even the best sports teams in the world have coaches? Why do the best individual sports persons, including world champions, hire coaches? Most of these players are better players than the coaches. They have more national/ international exposure and even more experience as players than the coaches. In fact, the players usually have far more money in the bank than the coaches ever will.

The Different Levels:

The coach for a school team works on building and developing the basics of the game. The coach for a college team focuses on the strategy aspect. Similarly, the coach at a higher level generally works on the mental aspect.

The coach for a school team works on the skills. The coach for a college team works on the application. In the same vein, the coach at a higher level works on the temperament of a champion.

(For CAT, each one of us needs to work on skills, application and temperament in differing measures. For now, let us leave that for another day.)

The Small Big Difference:

The talent and the hardwork is entirely of the player. The coach just guides, mentors, motivates and strives to bring out the best in the player. It is the proverbial icing on the cake.

It is the small little percentage on the top of the huge percentage that comes from the player. However, that little small percentage, when it works right from both sides, becomes a big thing. This is the single biggest reason why any coaching, including the best coaching for CAT, exists.

You, the player, are the big thing. We, your coaching, are just with you for that little (big) difference.

Let us ensure it happens right and it turns out big!

About the author: Deekshant has sleep-walked through several 100 and 99.9 %iles in practically every section of the CAT. That he is a cricket fan and he writes okay is evident from most of his posts. 1000s of our students swear that he can motivate almost anyone to double his/her percentile through very simple yet powerful inputs. And that’s why every MBAGuru student has direct access to him via mail and Telegram. Oddly, he somehow also finds the time to write songs professionally. And yes … almost missed this … he is an alumnus of IIT Delhi & IIM Cal 🙂
