The role of sport in preparing people for the challenges of life.
When Erin asked me to come on this podcast I was honored – the conversations and questions she and Kristn have been exploring are incredibly important for athletes and coaches – especially in relation to transitioning athletes and military as well as balancing both performance, work and life.
In this we explore models for navigating the world which can help us understand how we as humans and athletes can evolve, adapt, and come out better on the backside of performance.
Fergus Connolly is a performance expert who has worked with professional sports teams around the world. Fergus sat down with Erin and Kristin and talked about how he believes that the role of sport is preparing people for the challenges of life. He has made a career out of working with all different types of athletes, special operators and personnel. Fergus has published two books on performance and team dynamics and has a really good insight into not only how athletes can train and perform better, but simultaneously prepare themselves for life after. Fergus gets into the dangers of specializing in one specific area and how that may be our greatest threat to adaptability. Fergus is amazing at is creating models for navigating the world which can help us understand how we as humans and athletes can evolve, adapt, and come out better on the backside of performance.
