For today’s post I wanted to just share a video, but finding one that I thought would be beneficial to captains was a bit more challenging than I believed. In the end, I succeeded to find two videos that I want to share both about 5mins in length.

One is a talk from a Olympic athlete and the other from a business guy on motivation. Check them out and tell me what you think.

The reason I shared these are because I know that learning from mistakes isn’t a natural response for athletes…you tend to want to forget any loss and start with a blank slate. I believe that learning from your mistakes is what gives you real experience that in turn gives you a sense of mental toughness. As a captain you have to make sure your team learns sometimes by you pointing it out.

I also believe that as a captain you have to learn how to communicate well. And one of the best ways is to understand your teammates motivation. The second video gives you a framework where you can figure that out.

But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
