In this episode of the Curious Mind, Dave Wright, founder of Player Development Project, and I reflect on our summer break in Aotearoa, including how our emotions affect the experiences of our children and athletes. 

We also dig into:

  • Social status, the ego and the risk of adult intervention devoid of awareness;
  • Praise versus affirmation;
  • The monkey mind;
  • The importance of role modelling;
  • Getting comfortable with risk, and;
  • Getting clear on the outcome we are looking for.
