December 17, 2018

On Episode 7 of this podcast I sit down with one of coaching and sciences most brilliant minds, Dr. Matt Jordan. If you aren't familiar with Matt is a sought after presenter on return to sport after injury, training program design for elite athletes, and creating interdisciplinary high performance practitioner teams and the information we cover on the episode is mind blowing.

I wanted to get him on the podcast to talk about some of the uncomfortable topics that aren't often asked in the coaching and research communities like how to create value, get your rhythm and avoid the imposter syndrome and I think we nailed it. Check out the episode to find out for yourself.

Other topics covered include:

  • What role speaking plays in the atmosphere of strength and condition

  • Being yourself as a coach and presenter

  • Topics that are overbastardized

  • The problem of having too many dismisses coaches but not enough skeptics

  • The importance of asking questions and not being "too cool" to be ask something dumb

  • The anatomy of a great question

  • Failing to connect and bombing as a public speaker

  • Gauging impact beyond performance
