Really insightful piece, loved the reference to Beyonce and the story of how she goes into the learning zone (critical analysis and reflection) following a performance.
Really worth a watch
like the comment 'we need to know when to seek the learning zone and when to see the performing zone'. I maybe spend too much time in the learning zone as a coach and need to reflect on how I might work differently in the performing zone.
also worth being more explicit in your planning and with the athletes about the purpose/approach being taken for the practice/session/game
It's very true what he says about creating 'low-stakes islands' in a chronic high-stakes environment. As coaches, it's so important to demonstrate to our athletes that even though we expect top performance at competitions, there is always a safe place for them to learn and improve in the practice sessions beforehand.
Just thought I would share that Eduardo and Jeremy Frith have linked up to share their thoughts on the above talk's relevance to sport and coaching. The blog Jeremy posted is here https://www.connectedcoaches.org/spaces/10/welcome-and-general/blogs/general/6622/learning-and-performance-zones-in-sports
As a new coach but an experienced runner, this was very useful.
