Daniel Coyle's book The Talent Code is full of coaching insights, and he posts frequently on these topics. This post is on feedback to athletes, and the post title is referencing this phrase which establishes a framework from which to give feedback:

"I’m giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them."

This sets the stage for athletes working towards elite performance, that underpins that you are giving feedback to reinforce the high standards required, and that you believe the athlete can achieve those standards.
