Excellent and valuable pointers have been highlighted here. Should by itself be another specific thread as a guideline for those who has an intention to hire a badminton coach.
Its always has been the criteria that when it comes to the issue of "is it worth hiring a coach", the quality of such coaching outcomes derives from the perspectives of how their student/s evaluate their coach's coaching style, knowledge, personality etc. If we carefully understand that in any process of learning, the effectiveness of any information delivered regardless if it is a theory or practical in nature, it requires an effective 2 way mutual communication between a teacher and his student, in this case between a badminton coach and his learner. This effective way of connection will then create "a bond" between coach and his student which will then drastically influences much of the outcome of the coaching delivered. The closer and more harmony the bond similarly like a father to a son (i.e Datuk Misbun and Datuk LCW), more improvements will follow. One most important criteria that will much influences the nature of such bond is the character that you have inside you as a learner as far as if you're dedicated to learn badminton is concern.
You can have the best coach available on earth but then, if his student don't have the right attitude inside his heart and mind then no theory and practical knowledge that his coach teaches him will be as beneficial as he hope since he hasn't set within himself first the correct character and quality as a quality learner in order to facilitate and support his coach quest in guiding him to become a better player at the first place. In the other words, before a student want to evaluate whether is it worth hiring a coach, it is very important also at the same time that he must evaluate himself whether he has the right mental and character attitude inside him to become a motivated and highly discipline student as his student. If such character exist then it will be a very valuable asset to have a coach with you to guide you since you have already what it takes to become a better player mentally and it is just a matter of your pure dedication and motivation towards following your coaching structure to further improve how you play.
