Soccer Coaching: Bob Bradley’s Lessons From USA, Egypt & Beyond (Re-broadcast)

Mental toughness & resilience for coaches

soccer-coach-Bob-Bradley-2
A rebroadcast from 2014, with the first-ever American to be appointed as head coach (manager) of a British Premier League team – Swansea.

Bob Bradley one of the most experienced and resilient coaches in the world. He has led the U.S. National Men’s team, the Egyptian National Men’s team, Stabaek, a top division club side in Norway and in 2016, Le Havre, the French Second Division squad.

He’s also a soccer dad extraordinaire – his son Michael is one of the leading American players and was a standout during this summer’s World Cup.

Bob has learned quite a few lessons along the way: from 2006 to 2011 where his U.S. team won 43 games, tied 12 and lost 25. Among the victories was a triumph in 2009 over Spain, the number one ranked country at the time.  2011 to 2013 was spent Egypt, compiling a record of 24 wins, 5 ties and 7 losses. Since earlier this year he’s been at the helm of Stabaek, a first division team based in suburban Oslo.

Adam is a former standout water polo player himself, with lots of fascinating things to say about making the transition from athlete to coach. You’ll hear about how the legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden has been major source of inspiration. Like Wooden,

Adam is refreshingly modest and open, qualities that were dramatically apparent in the later stages of the Olympics, which you’ll also hear about when he discusses a key mistake he made and its aftermath.

Rio Focus: Coaching Ashton Eaton For a Place In History (Re-broadcast)

ashton_eaton_brianne_harry_2Decathlon: Ashton Eaton, Brianne Theisen-Eaton (Re-broadcast)

For long-time followers of the podcast and or track and field, Harry Marra needs no introduction. He¹s graced us with his presence twice before. Back again after a triumphant season  guiding decathlete Ashton Eaton to World Championship Gold in Beijing and heptathlete Brianne Theisen Eaton to the silver in the same competition.

Coach Marra gives us some intimidate insights into this critical period leading up to the Olympics in Rio. Asthton, who holds the world record as well as having won Olympic Gold in  London, quite possibly deserves the title the greatest athlete of all time. Certainly his case will be strengthened if his tops the table in Brazil this summer. And if Brianne can break through and win gold, the three quite possibly will become the most successful training trio in history.

As you will hear in this interview, at 68 Coach Marra may or may not be on the verge of retirement but either way, this is yet another generous insight from him into the mind of a master coach.

Sprint Legend Michael Johnson on Strength and Conditioning and Mental Focus (Rebroadcast)

Speed endurance, high intensity training, NFL Combine preparation (Rebroadcast)

michael_johnson_runningFor track and field aficionados and followers of Olympic sports in general, the legendary sprinter Michael Johnson needs little introduction. But I’ll say a few words anyway as reminders: Michael is still holder of the 400 meter world record and a former holder of the 200 meter record.

He is the only athlete in history to hold world records and win Olympic gold medals in both those events at the same time. Michael’s breakthrough performances were in Atlanta in 1996 but he also struck gold in Barcelona and Sydney in a career at the very top than spanned over a decade.

Matt Jordan on “Relentless and Purposeful Preparation”

Athletes, coaches and supporting cast members centralize and prepare every single day as a collective to deliver performance on demand.

The support team brings expertise to help remove physical barriers for performance on demand.  The coaches bring technical expertise and sport know-how to ensure the athletes have the ability to perform on demand.  And the athletes engage these experts and engage in rigorous preparation to deliver performance on demand.

This needs to be executed from the smallest scale (i.e. the passing seconds) to the large scale (i.e. the passing years), and done so in a highly repetitious manner to establish the mental and physical skills to deliver performance on demand

Great teams often need an Affiliator

Great teams need a mix of personality styles – too many hard-driving “alpha” types can rock the boat off course.

That’s apparent from The Last Amateurs, by Mark de Rond, a fascinating account of Cambridge University’s winning boat in the Oxford-Cambridge Race of 2007.

The CxC Consutling Balanced Leadership Model highlights four broad personality styles: Activator, Affiliator, Analyser and Conceptualiser.

Most successful leaders tend to have two, and sometime as many as three of the styles on display. A rare few, who we refer to as “Fully Balanced,” have ready access to all four styles and are able to combine them and switch in and out of one or another as the situation requires.
