• "It's not pining for the fjords - it's bleedin' demised..." - The Norwegian Blue and Coach Education

    11 GIU 2024 · Richard Burcuson and Dean Holden are the hosts of the Grass Roots Minor Hockey Podcast. A show dedicated to all things grass roots ice hockey in Canada and beyond... As they describe it... "A provocative, in-depth podcast that examines the world of minor hockey, from coaching to program development to the myriad of issues faced by everyone in the game." The guys reached out to me following my latest series called 'Coach Education is broken' as it resonated with many of their own experiences as coaches and coach educators and we decided to do a 'simulcast' which would be jointly posted oon our respective podcasts.  Richard evoked the famous Monty Python sketch about a dead parrot when describing this topic so we decided to get all theatrical and do our own reading of the famous sketch... https://www.grassrootsminorhockey.com

  • Coach Education is Broken - episode 2 - Change the Paradigm

    7 GIU 2024 · In this episode I call for a complete rethink about the way that we think about support for coaches. I suggest that we need to 'turn the telescope around' and start to consider the skills, knowledge, and understanding that coaches already possess, rather than forcing everybody to obtain formal qualifications through coach education courses.  I share a story about a brilliant coach I know who hasn’t gone down the route of formal certifications, yet their coaching abilities are second to none. They’re the kind of coach who, despite lacking the official badges, has that 'secret sauce', that ability to connect with people and make their experience memorable.  We need a shift in mindset within coach education to appreciate and support people based on their current expertise and experiences. It’s about creating tailored learning experiences, recognising prior learning, and making coaching more accessible to a wider range of people. As I said in the episode, “It’s not about the piece of paper; it’s about the real-world impact a coach has.” Ultimately, the coaching community is calling for a more inclusive approach in coach education not the 'one size fits all' model that is still too prevalent. A move towards effective and personalised support, ensuring every coach can thrive and contribute in their own way. By doing this, we can build a stronger, more diverse coaching community. Hope you enjoy the episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Let’s keep pushing for change and making a real difference in the world of coaching.

  • Coach Education is broken - episode 1 - Transformation not transaction

    6 GIU 2024 · Episode 1 of 'Coach Education is broken' - 'Transformation not transaction' I take a hard look at the nature of coach education courses as a machanism to provide coaches with the kind of support they need. I criticise the thinking behind this approach and the 'culturally resient practices and beliefs' that fosters their continued use.  This focus on efficiency means that coaches often get their qualifications without genuinely engaging with the material or retaining what they’ve learned. As a result, they’re left unprepared for the real-world challenges they will face in their coaching careers. I call for a shift towards newer, more agile and dynamic educational approaches that prioritise quality learning experiences and practical application.

  • How to help people get better at anything - a conversation with Scott H. Young

    17 MAG 2024 · Scott Young makes an extremely welcome return to the podcast having written a new book about learning that follows up on the smash hit 'https://amzn.to/44PcjFy'. https://amzn.to/3UXXygghas a different flavour as it takes us on a more practical journey to explore the development of skill in multiple domains.  I was gripped by this conversation as we explored:  - What Tetris players can teach us about getting better. - Why the mind is not a muscle!  - Why we should value variability over repetition. - Why improvement is not a straight line.  - Why practice must meet reality.  Amongst a whole heap of other things.  I hope you enjoy as much as I did.  Lhttps://soundcloud.com/user-324815295/ep-298-my-new-book-get-better-at-anything-is-now-available?utm_source=clipboard&utm_campaign=wtshare&utm_medium=widget&utm_content=https%253A%252F%252Fsoundcloud.com%252Fuser-324815295%252Fep-298-my-new-book-get-better-at-anything-is-now-available  Link to the https://www.scotthyoung.com/

  • "More skilled in 10 minutes of play...than 12 months of traditional training" - a conversation with Josh Peacock

    13 MAG 2024 · In this episode I am joined by Josh Peacock from 'Combat Learning' and the 'Combat Learning Podcast'. Combat Learning is about radically improving teachers and learners of martial arts using the ecological approach to training. They explore the little-known frontiers of skill adaptation, perceptual-motor learning, and human performance science for combat sports. As Josh says...."After teaching martial arts for several years, I realised that most instruction is based on unexamined traditions handed down from one instructor to another. Little to no science or research is ever incorporated…Hungry to explore ways to improve myself as an instructor, I set off to study educational psychology and motor learning. In that process, I discovered the games-based and constraints-led approaches to coaching, which are radically different methodologies than what I had seen anywhere in my career as a martial artist…In fact, these methodologies are built around designing practice exercises that allow students to explore the solutions to problems on their own, rather than teaching them solutions directly or having them do lots of technique repetitions".  It's a fascinating conversation about the challenges of tackling tradition and culturally resilient beliefs.  Hope you enjoy

  • “I think sometimes you do drills for other reasons than skill development" - a conversation with Mike Jagacki

    10 APR 2024 · This episode is another in my new series focussed on having conversations with people I don't 100% agree with. https://www.lockdownhoops.com/i joins me to explore the nuances of his basketball coaching philosophy which takes a 'best of both worlds' approach' trying to integrate ecological ideas with concepts from information processing.  Key Themes Discussed: - Balancing Coaching Styles: the importance of finding the right mix between structured and flexible coaching approaches. We delve into how aligning coaching philosophies within the staff and incorporating various styles can lead to optimal team performance. - Influence of Mentors and Philosophy Integration: The episode highlights how mentors have played a crucial role in shaping Mike's coaching beliefs and practices. We explore the significance of building a solid defensive foundation and how integrating different coaching philosophies enhances player capabilities. - Player Development Methodologies: Unpacking the balance between isolated skill drills and game-like contextual training, in fostering player growth. The focus is on the necessity of blending foundational skill-building with decision-making and real-game scenarios for effective skill transfer. - Dynamic and Adaptive Training: Training methods that are not only dynamic and adaptive but also encourage creativity. These methods aim to refine specific skills while ensuring they fit within a structured sports system. - Building Confidence and Teamwork: We examine the role of drills in fostering confidence, teamwork, and a positive player mentality. The episode also covers how pre-practice rituals can instill core values in players. - Overcoming Challenges and Instilling Core Values: From desensitizing players to fear and hesitation to the use of specific terminology for smooth transitions from individual skills to team play.  I enjoyed the conversation - I hope you do too.

The Talent Equation podcast is an 'exploration in human advancement'... mostly (but not exclusively) through the lens of sport and physical activity.

Each episode is an 'emergent conversation' with practitioners, parents, researchers, authors (or some combination of all three) taking a deep dive into the ways that people can help others to enhance their developmental journey in whatever field they are committed to.

These conversations are not mainstream - you will not hear ideas that are provided on standard education courses - they often fly in the face of convention - they will sometimes be controversial and provocative - the show is about doing things differently and doing different things. 

The people who come on the show are innovators - they are trying to break new ground or swim against the tide of what they see as a broken culture or an ineffective system - what they say will prompt new thinking or new ideas. 

All that is asked of the listener is to embrace the conversation with an open mind.
