On this episode we have the opportunity to speak with Dan Pfaff. Dan is one of the most sought after thinkers in the performance industry with over 50 years of experience coaching and teaching.
We kick off reflecting on lessons learned from the 2020 summer Olympics for both coaches and athletes. Dan walks us through how many different factors affect sports performance, many of which most of us don’t even consider.
Our chat goes on to discuss athlete resilience and what lessons can be learned from battle field surgeons that apply to sports. We also dive into the place of mentorship for coaches and young people in general and how much learning is driven by our relationships with failure.
Coach Dan is an incredible thinker and will certainly shift your perspective on what matters most in sport and life.
