#23 Dr Len Zaichkowsky and Dan Peterson - How to Raise Your Mental Game to the Next Level

The Sport Psych Show

I’m delighted to be joined by Dr Len Zaichkowsky and Dan Peterson in this episode. Len and Dan have written the ground-breaking book The Playmakers Advantage: How to Raise Your Mental Game to the Next Level which uses cognitive science research to reveal the elusive qualities playmakers possess - that winning combination of anticipation, perception, and decision-making skills.   We mainly speak about this fantastic book, specifically: what makes a playmaker; the disadvantage of early specialisation in sport; athlete cognition; search, decide, execute; physical fatigue leading to mental fatigue; growth mindset; the importance of mental flexibility; choking under pressure and automaticity.
