    Ep. 42 "Making your best day better" (Guest: Dr. Chris Shambrook)

    Ep. 42 "Making your best day better" (Guest: Dr. Chris Shambrook)

    Another massive episode this week that has Sean and Mark talking to Sports Psychologist Dr. Chris Shambrook of Planet K2. Chris has worked with Team GB's rowing team, as well as British cricket teams and the Cambridge Boat Race crew. It's an episode chock full of ideas and takeaways on how to get a team working at peak performance consistently.
    In the episode they cover visualising successful performance not just successful outcomes, what acceptable failure and unacceptable success looks like. They also talk about shorting the gap between your best day and your worst, how positive attitude is only useful if it leads to positive actions and why party food (and Coco the Clown) have no place in the meeting room.
    Dr. Chris references a few books in the episode:-
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07C3ZT28C/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8andbtkr=1 (9 Lies About Work - Marcus Buckingham / Ashley Goodall)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_to_Great (Good To Great - Jim Collins)
    As well as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuckman%27s_stages_of_group_development (Tuckman's Model of Team Development )
    Sean also recommends Dr. Chris' appearance on Dan Abrahams' https://thesportpsychshow.libsyn.com/126-frances-houghton-mbe-dr-chris-shambrook-learnings-from-five-olympic-games (The Sports Psych Show)

    Ep. 41: "Creative people... they're unbelievable" (Guest: Hywel Evans)

    Ep. 41: "Creative people... they're unbelievable" (Guest: Hywel Evans)

    A refreshed and invigorated Sean and Mark return form their Summer break and dive straight in with creativity consultant, enterprise and innovation adviser and audio producer Hywel Evans.
    In the episode they cover the myth of the uncreative person, how organisations kill ideas and where they go today and, in a sideways move, why it can be valuable to pretend you are a penguin. They also discuss making creativity a collaborative process, why you are better off paying for a bar tab than that expensive team-building away day and what to do when your ideas are met with a big fat no.
    Plus lots more.
    In the episode they Hywel references https://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_do_schools_kill_creativity (Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talk), the documentary https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13302848/ (Inside Pixar) and https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2MaADRnh8_k (the opening sequence of La La Land).

    OLYMPIC REPOST: "Teaching What Competition Looks Like" (Guest: Team GB's Rob Richardson)

    While the Tokyo Olympics are taking place (and Sean and Mark are taking a short break) we will be reposting some previous episodes where the chaps had an opportunity to speak to athletes and coaches who have had the Olympic experience.
    First up, Mark and Sean had the privilege of speaking to Team GB Paralympic Sitting Volleyball Captain Rob Richardson. They talk building teams out of strangers, 'taking the message' when you are being screamed at on the pitch and how important awareness of Paralympic sport is for future generations.
