Sometimes the easiest way to understand a thing it is to understand an example. So in this case, I’ll use our business as the example.
At Athlete Assessments one of our values is growth. It’s a human need. Everyone needs to feel they are growing, developing, improving and for us that’s certainly the case. But how do we go about achieving growth?
Our ‘Big Reason Why’ is a topic we talk about in our ATHLETE TOUGH™ program and I was looking at it today with a team, because it’s soon to be Fall in America and they’re faced with the proposition of going home and either looking at this period of time as a vacation or a break.
Welcome to another edition of 5 minutes with Bo Hanson, today I thought it might be useful, given that we’re coming towards the end of the year, to take a moment and reflect on some of the experiences we’ve had throughout season 2017.
In this 5 Minute with Bo Hanson, Bo talks about recognizing the difference between a Momentary Adaptation and a Sustained Adaptation and how the two effect an athletes’ ability to perform at their best.
Athlete Transition is a topic that has recently gained a lot of momentum as a critical issue in sport. For elite athletes, the large majority of their effort and energy is focused on their training and competition. Throughout their careers, athletes make personal, professional and financial sacrifices so they can pursue their dreams. Often, things outside of sport are perceived as a luxury they simply cannot indulge, so it stands to reason that when sport is no longer an option, an athlete’s life feels out of balance or even, meaningless.
Stepping out of your comfort zone is an important component to growth, personal development and achieving success. As Coaches, we continually encourage our athletes to get comfortable with the uncomfortable in order to expand skill development and improve results. However, there is a big difference between creating experiences and/or environments that are uncomfortable and those that are unsafe. In this ‘5 Minutes with Bo Hanson’, we discuss the important differences between being unsafe and being uncomfortable.
