    If it distracts us from learning... don't do it, its just noise!

    If it distracts us from learning... don't do it, its just noise!

    This week's conversation we chat and reflect with Perttu Kytöhonka (Swedish Floorball Federation Assistant Coach) who is in a working group led by his native Finland and the national Floorball Federation.  

    The group is currently exploring "...if there is some research on competitive junior sports and the notion of ”tough games” really helping the development of athletes or is it only one of these resilient myths.”

    S1E12 - Facilitating learning in development - a culture of interactions (LIVE)

    S1E12 - Facilitating learning in development - a culture of interactions (LIVE)

    This week's conversation is an attempt to host a live stream with guests who are listeners of the show to explore further the importance of understanding and developing a culture.   

    We asked for questions from listeners with the following being discussed:  

    1. Vladislav Bespomoshchnov (Sports Institute of Finland) – “When it comes to studying your own culture - what things to look for in history and path dependency? How to identify bright spots and build up the training/coaching/leadership/management around it?”  

    2. Martin Vlk (Calgary West Soccer Association) – “If you would be put into a position to lead a new club, where values are not aligned with yours (such as tryouts in place, traditional coaching approach deeply rooted at the youngest levels U6-12, etc.). How would you approach your work going forward?”

    Coach as a designer

    This week's conversation we chat and reflect on the last ten weeks of the show and listener's feedback whilst continuing to explore further the coach as an environmental architect. We use the practical framework from AIK and Mark's recent blog post (https://footblogball.wordpress.com).  

    Next week we will stream a live show (12pm ET) and we are looking for input from the listeners. Please submit your questions to contact@learningindevelopment.net (Deadline May 31st). Those selected will be invited to ask the question on the live stream.
