In this episode, we reflect on what we’ve learned over nearly two decades of coaching. What did we think was important but quickly realized wasn’t? What actually matters in preparing athletes to perform? We cover all of this and more in today’s episode. Topics covered include:

  1. Building Buy-In
  2. Stabilizing Lifestyles
  3. Getting Comfortable with asymmetrical progress
  4. What actually matters- The decisive factors in developing high performers.
