June 2018 Hangout: Beyond the methods

We often talk about the plan and training methods. But many other factors influence success. In the June 2018 Hangout, we have a wide-ranging discussion examining many of these other success factors with guests Martin Bingisser, Mike Bahn, Steve Myrland, Tracy Fober and Donie Fox. Topics included:

  • Highlights from GAIN 2018 and building networks.
  • Sharing stories of our influences and learning about coaching from individuals like John Thrush.
  • The role of personality in individual vs. team sport coaching.
  • Communicating and coordinating with external coaches, including examples from Jimmy Radcliffe.
  • Finding common goals and develop rapport with external coaches (and vice versa).
  • Offseason training challenges in professional sports and the art of coaching remotely.
  • Getting a different view of an athlete through another coach.
  • NFL vs. NHL training culture and the collective bargaining agreement.
  • Offseason demands in ski and snowboard and fostering independence among athletes.
  • Working with physicians and learning from physicians.
  • How team dynamics and competition can improve intensity and quality of training.
  • Explaining your thought process and summarizing your training philosophy in one sentence.
