Andrew Ellis - Connection Is Key (EP 105)
Connection is Key
On the show today I chat with former international cricketer, Andrew Ellis. Andrew played first-class cricket for Canterbury from 2003 until 2020 and represented his country in both the One Day and Twenty20 formats of the game.
Andrew is now a dad of two young children and works for High-Performance Sport New Zealand as the manager of the Christchurch region.
In this conversation, Andrew and I discuss age and stage appropriate coaching, finding the courage the take risks, connection and why Andrew believes it is the starting point for everything great, the struggle between a thirst for training volume to get better and doing too much, battling the inner critic, and much more.
This is Andrew’s story.
