023: Steve discusses sustaining high performance with Jamie Pringle and Rosie Mayes

Play

Sustaining high performance: Steve Ingham is joined once again by Jamie Pringle from the Performance Science Distillery and Rosie Mayes from the EB Centre. So sustaining performance – this is an interesting one. The discussion this week covers a series of tensions we come across in order to sustain performance, both as athletes and as support staff. Yes, we all want to achieve something and do well, but if it’s a bit of flash in the pan then there’s a chance that there will be a void behind it. That’s accepting that anything we ever do in aspiring for something that’s just outside our reach, will have its ups and downs, it will need us to stay open minded yet aware of what is essential, as you age, as competition changes and priorities change. This discussion is just as rich as all the other panel discussions, this one’s got some tangibles, but its also got some deep and challenging philosophy about how we perform, engage with others and the very concept of maintaining excellence over the longer-term arc of life.

Show Notes

Investing time and effort into physical and psychological attributes for many years E.g. Roger Federer and David Beckham. 

Different stages of a performer’s physical journey 

Understanding of self and identity vital for management of physical training and step change. 

Learning at the razor’s edge. Thinking outside of the box and exploring environments to find more ways to achieve performance. 

In the high-performance world, how can we align curiosity to purpose to generate outcome? How mindset and culture can prevent curiosity. 

Harnessing the power of collective intelligence to help coaches and athletes make better decisions. Making the complex, simple and adopting an interdisciplinary mindset. 

Technical knowledge and skills will not get you far in performance environments without the personal skills required to deliver the knowledge and help people find answers. 

Reflections on exploration, open-mindedness and identity across the lifespan. 

The importance of role models in inspiring others and developing positive talent development environments. 

The power of structure, debriefing and creating and sustaining high performance habits. 

Understanding the performer and helping them tap into this awareness to unlock potential. 

Meeting performance indicators, funding and talent development.

Curiosity and context is key. Where am I on my journey and what is now relevant, what is now required for me to improve? Go out and explore, generate opportunities for learning and reflection.

022: Steve Ingham, Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes discuss stress adaptation

Play
Read more

Steve discusses the essential concept of stress - adaptation with Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes. We explore what a stimulus is and does and the factors that determine the effectiveness of a stimulus. We discuss the experiences and environments that mitigate any adaptive responses, exploring the concepts of individualisation and group responses from a physical and cognitive performance perspective and then broaden that application to work and business and the very concept of progression, the achievement of mastery.

Show Notes

An introduction to Hans Selye's seminal work on the systemic hormonal responses to stress and how the human body and mind responds under duress.

Positive and negative stressors and responses. No pain no gain…pushing into an area of discomfort or pain to allow development and adaptation.

Dr Mary Neville sprint adaptation and 12 leg biopsies!

Stress adaptations are complex to interpret. Adaptations occur as a result of a variety of interacting dynamics across our individual experiences. 

Do we adapt and improve without some form of stressor?

Fight or flight response, Walter Cannon

Does it always have to be a stressor? Appreciative enquiry, the reinforcement of the positives

Minimum effective dosing. What are the core pieces in your training that are giving you 80-90% of your adaptation both physically and mentally?

The subjective experience of enduring a stressor. Knowing yourself, others and the concept of time throughout the stress adaptation and recovery process.

The role of the coach and scientist enabling the athlete to know what is going on in their mind and body in a way that is helpful for them. Coach - Athlete relationship key.

Carol Dweck's, growth vs fixed mindsets and the stubbornness of self-efficacy.

Knowing your capabilities, boundaries and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

Variety is key in developing an adaptation. Monotony and familiarity can prevent or slow adaptation. Explore and find your own method.

Fail fast and learn quick. An environment to allow failure and learning important for creativity and innovation in sport and business.

Ability to perform under pressurised conditions develops and acclimatises your skillset, resulting in increased skill development.

No one's fitter at the end of a marathon! Failure and suppression of the system from which adaptation occurs

Learning and the state of flow. Being immersed, focused and recovery. Immersion, incubation and inspiration.

Discussion on the mind-body relationship and the role of feedback in adaptation, self-regulation and performance.

The business world is great at stressing but less so at recovering.

Moving the body can move the brain. Shifting from an idle physical and mental state into an active physical state can alter brain functioning (Forgetting and doorway research, https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.3758/PBR.17.6.900.pdf)

Becoming self-aware, understanding ourselves and how we operate in the world in order to create environments in which we can test, adapt and develop.

Put yourself in the shoes of the athlete as an applied sport scientist. Empathy, trust, credibility and an understanding of their sport crucial.

Striving for meaning and mastery in personal and professional pursuits.

As Yoda would preach - "we have to work intentionally with courage, effort, patience, persistence and reflection in order to fail, adapt and grow"

019: Steve Ingham, Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes on lessons from working with elite performers

Play
Read more

Steve discusses lessons from the frontline of working with elite performers with Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes. We discuss the essentials of that initial engagement with elite athletes, what to do and what not to do. Getting clarity around your role and what you're working to so that you can prioritise. What clues you might be drawing from the environment, the culture that can help you connect with others and be more effective. Importantly we discuss how some of our behaviours, actions and the bonds between us change under the pressure of competition.

What is it like to work with an elite athlete?

Understanding the culture and environment of sport

Applying your skill and experience to the high performance training environment

Step into the shoes of your athlete, see and experience what they do.

Working with high level performers, winning Olympic medals, but the hard work is completed day in day out on the track or pool

What if they are not interested in the science?

The world doesn't revolve around you

Team sports have their own culture and identity

Cultural intelligence, what do you learn and how do you apply it?

Using humility and credibility in a high performance environment…it's not about you!

Losing naivety, understanding your role, the athlete role and clarity of knowledge

Expecting less from a performance based relationship

Don't fall into the trap of wanting to be valued!

Team identity and the pressure that increases the close to high performance moments

Recognising the pressure for others increasing when you might also be feeling an increase in pressure

Wanting a sense of team belonging and an amplification when under pressure

Searching for certainty in pressure situations

Consistency in training and consistency in performance is a good marker as how you will perform on the day

Get involved in the culture, atmosphere and connect with the individual. The relationships you build on a one to one basis and the development of trust is invaluable.

Steve Ingham, Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes, discuss the rise of UK High Performance System that has gone from 36th on the medal table in 1996 Olympics to 2nd at the Rio Olympics in 2016, becoming a global sporting superpower. This episode discusses what are the common trends in successful high performing systems and looks forward as to how performance can be sustained.

What are the determining factors of a successful system?

What are the things from other performance environments you would find which are similar to the British system irrespective of context and culture?

Jamie plays devil’s advocate - if we had unlimited resources what would we do with that money?

Where might we want to see future investment for competitive advantage if we had unlimited resources?

If we travelled forward 100 years, what would we want to see long term residing in high performance sport system that is successful?

If we travelled back 100 years, to 1917, what would have astounded our contemporaries?

Episode #2 Panel Discussion (Part 2 of 3)

Steve Ingham, Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes, discuss the rise of Uk High Performance System that has gone from 36th on the medal table in 1996 Olympics to 2nd at the Rio Olympics in 2016, becoming a global sporting superpower.

This episode charts the necessary focus that came with the award of the home games, what challenges it brought and how the roles change under mounting pressure and resource. Show notes 4:01 July 6th 2005 London was awarded the Olympic Games

Suddenly the bar has gone higher…we need more!

Know what your role is. The fundamental difference between sport science in the academic sense and thinking about the performer and their performance

The athletes don’t care who supplies the support, they want the support. The coach’s role is the distiller of language that the athlete can understand. 10:31 How has the education of the coaches developed and how has science been able to inform the coach?

The athlete centred, coach managed network. How do you explain what a scientist does within that role?

Coach education

One practitioner can become the filter through which the coach and the athlete can connect

For a coach the leadership challenge has changed

The leadership challenge for the coach is team management, clarity, cutting through the noise applying priority

Switching from a scientist role to coaching Kelly Sotherton - I need to cut down the noise, I’m a noise generator!

The dynamics of the team, relationships in the success of performers - creating champions 16:51 It’s a filtering process, I don’t want more I want less! No-one would ever teach me that story

It requires a whole host of different intelligences, intra-personal skills, inter-personal skills in order for your ideas to land

Ego, sectors that have bright people can come with an arrogance. Personality preferences, “Oh god I’m like that am I”?! If you have a team dynamic, if you can put your ego aside and have a role to play that isn’t your best position, that’s a real challenge

Complexity of a network and the ability to establish trust

Are we all playing the same tune?

When we have a clear sense of purpose about what we are doing. The professionalisation of the system in Britain we are part of a network that brings a sense of belonging for everyone.

London 2012, everyone was focussed on the summit. We always expect a lull after a big pie but…that could have been the best day at work EVER?!

Fear, threat, resistance. What is your purpose, asking why questions. To give pride to a nation.

To achieve this goal, where would you start?

Working for somebody, and it has consequence, it gives purpose and the purpose has consequence.

Why do you do what you do? This fundamental level of deep thinking isn’t taught, isn’t facilitates and when it is you get a united sense behind a common purpose.

If we start people thinking earlier, “Why do I do what I do?”, it will enhance what they do

Plugging gaps in order to create new progress/performance is a differentiator in the GB system
