Learning with the Brain in Mind – Michael Hebron and Susie Meyers #185

Karl Morris - The Brainbooster

Today we have a very special show as we welcome back to the Brain Booster Michael Hebron and Susie Meyers. The podcast with Susie a few weeks ago went down really well and we had some tremendous feedback. On that show Susie mentioned how much Michael Hebron had been an influence on her career. I can say the same myself. Michael was very kind to me a number of years ago when he welcomed me to his club at Smithtown Landing in New York and he allowed me to watch him teach. We have kept in touch ever since From those early days Michael has evolved his coaching from a very technique orientated model to one that is much more about the nature of LEARNING How we need to create learning environments to allow students to best develop their game. Michael has spent many years researching the most productive ways to coach and learn with the brain in mind The conversation flowed in a number of directions that you will find useful to consider Golf is a game of motion not positions The importance of time in the golf swing Bad swings are not made when get out of time A putting swing and a driver swing take the same time The concept of ONE in the swing Coaching to get students to THINK How we react to the images in our mind before the shot How to create more effective images How we can develop effective sub conscious learning The myth of ‘muscle memory’ What we CAN influence before he shot The vital role of IMAGINATION How emotions drive so much of our development To find out more about Susie Meyers go to www.susiemeyersgolf.com To find out more about Michael Hebron Go to www.michaelhebron.com Find out about the Mind Caddie App The Mind Caddie for IOS here: https://apps.apple.com/my/app/mind-caddie-play-better-golf/id1567910600 For Android here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mindcaddie.android To become a Mind Factor coach Go to www.themindfactor.com

His passion is creating great learning environments All of his concepts and ideas are backed by solid science. In our time together we discuss multiple topics all with the aim of making a difference to your game. Michael talks about his evolution as a coach How he went from gaining numerous awards and accolades teaching in way that he knew was not the most productive for the student Mike had the great courage to question himself and then to CHANGE He took a path which had at the heart of it the student and not the ego of the coach or the latest ‘must do’ swing technique. Michael has travelled the world giving seminars and workshops to most of the PGA’s of the world. We get the chance to discuss such topics as How the brain doesn’t tend to work well with too much detail When you have ‘in the ball park’ concepts the brain can create movement How everything happens in the brain first How concepts change movement not ‘positions’ How rhythm and timing are SO important to the golfing puzzle How the golf course will always ask you key questions IF you are listening Why we need to be adaptable not consistent How you can develop a better relationship to failure and why this is so vitally important Mike makes some great suggestions as to how you can improve both as a player and as a coach As ever Michael was so generous with his time and above all his spirit.
