Click Here To Leave A Review (takes 2 min) Take the FREE Winning Leader Assessment www.WinningLeader.io In this episode Eric Barker, author of 'Barking Up The Wrong Tree' and I discuss: ​ When you hear the phrase 'Coach Your Best' what does that mean to you? What inspired you to write this book How do you define 'success' and Where are we getting the concept of 'success' wrong? The world of coaching in sports and performance often brings big egos which can lead to challenges with trust and cooperation....you've written a chapter titled 'Do Nice Guys Finish Last'...so do nice 'coaches' finish last? What can coaches learn about trust and cooperation from street gangs? The importance of TRUST in a coaching relationship Coaches and athletes get inspired by hearing great stories that serve as motivation and inspiration...but I'm not so sure that coaches truly understand the power of story in helping athletes become champions. Eric's 3 P's for a successful story In chapter 3 'Do Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit' you talk about the importance of story as it relates to things such as grit and the number one indicator of a child's emotional well being. What do coaches need to know about the power of story? How can coaches apply your 'games mechanics' concept to help their athletes be more successful? (briefly discuss the four areas WNGF) What's the relationship between GRIT and the importance of story? Just about EVERY athlete has struggled with self-belief. In Ch 5 you talk about 'Believe in yourself....sometimes'. What can coaches learn about belief from a Kung Fu Artist and people who don't feel fear? The power of forgiveness and it's role in self-confidence The concept of 'Double Think'...a section Eric had to cut from the book
