    Ed Wolecki Black Interview

    Ed Wolecki Black Interview

    Rob talks to one of Scotland’s most successful player/managers, Ed Wolecki Black, former manager of Glasgow City, Airedrieonians, and Celtic Women, about his life in the game and his most valuable insights as a coach, as well as the many victories and challenges he has faced over his vast and varied career.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    A good coach is one who accepts the wisdom of those who teach, and who instils a sense of respect in those who learn.
    Preparation is a long term game. Fans think that the work only begins shortly before a match, but the great coaches know that growth is a long term pursuit.
    Football is a game, and a passion, that transcends the barrier of sex. Women’s football is as thrilling and as passionate as men’s, and Ed is a pioneer in making sure that it is as recognised as its counterpart.
    Trophies are the aim for the club itself, but when we as coaches look back upon our careers, it is the people and the moments of inspiration that we treasure.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’The papers summed it up as “The Tom And Jerry Show”!’

    ‘I’m a lucky guy. I’ve had success wherever I’ve gone. but it’s always down to players’

    ‘It’s not about the trophies. It’s about the people’

    ’This guy has got lessons to teach us, and they are loud and clear'

    Leo Tolstoy's Coaching Wisdom Episode 11

    Leo Tolstoy's Coaching Wisdom Episode 11

    Rob continues his fascinating look at the philosophies of Leo Tolstoy, and the insightful ways in which his teachings can positively impact coaching and mentoring practices.

    In this episode, Rob discusses the importance of self-knowledge, the power of words, why we should obey the voice of our conscience, and why we should always stand by our own philosophies.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Every journey begins with self-knowledge. We must know ourselves before we can effectively understand our ability to influence.
    Words have the power to create worlds, change lives and shape those around us. Never underestimate the value of well-chosen language.
    Knowledge should not be measured in quantity, but quality. Focus your attention on the things that matter and build your library of knowledge around it.
    Understanding rights and responsibilities is fundamental to societal success, organisational success, and individual happiness and progress. 

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘If you speak too much, it will be to your own detriment’

    ‘We need to spend more time thinking, and putting that into action’

    ’The world is awash with knowledge’

    ‘We are just a speck of protoplasm in this great story of humanity'

    A Journey Without A Map

    A Journey Without A Map

    Life itself is a journey without a map. We’re born, and must find our way through the journey of existence with no predefined blueprint to follow. In this week’s show, Rob discusses the multi-faceted and varied journeys we all take, and what commonalities link all pilgrimages through life.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    We often find that it’s far easier to make important decisions about lives other than our own, but when it comes to our own choices, we hesitate.
    Those who have goals and aspirations, and who achieve those milestones, understand the importance of willpower and determination. We must always push forward.
    Love and happiness only come from connections and relationship. Without them, we have no true purpose or direction.
    You never know when or how your labours will be rewarded. Sometimes they bear fruit in tenuous ways, but effort is always rewarded eventually.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘We don’t get a map. We all choose our own course’

    ‘When the student is ready, the teacher will appear’

    ’If you think good education is expensive, then you should try bad education'

    ’Sometimes we plant seeds, and those seeds don’t always come up'

    Eddie Jones. Coaching

    Eddie Jones. Coaching

    Coaching is a pursuit that takes place across many different disciplines. The finest leaders know that knowledge and wisdom are universal.

    After listening to a marvellous masterclass in the art of coaching from rugby coach, Eddie Jones, Rob is inspired to share some of the finest points of the interview, and the wisest lessons learned, so that you can become the best coach you can be.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you want to be successful in life, then you have to follow your passion. This requires a knowledge of one’s self, and what drives us.
    People who reach the pinnacle of their field, often do not become the great coaches. The great coaches are usually those who did not reach the top, but who developed drive, desire and resilience from not doing so.
    Perhaps the greatest skill that any coach can develop is the skill of drawing someone out of their comfort zone.
    The psychological side of coaching a team is not just in the game, but also in knowing when someone’s outlook or mood needs work. It can be as simple as encouraging someone to be on their “A” Game when they are not feeling positive.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘To become the best, you have to love what you do at a very deep level’

    ‘You have to find the right captain’

    ‘Develop respectful relationships, not necessarily friendships’

    ‘The athletes of today are getting stronger, faster, and better’

    Kicking On. The Connor Taylor Interview

    Kicking On. The Connor Taylor Interview

    Rob talks to young up-and-coming player, Connor Taylor, about life from the perspective of one of football’s most promising future stars.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Perseverance and dedication are two qualities that Connor was forced to learn quickly in his youth. Setbacks are magnified by youth. Resilience is formed swiftly.
    As a football player, even in the role of defender, you must have the skills to take chances when they come along. Training and development are vital.
    The best coaches are the ones who recognise the best positions for players based on their strengths. The best players are the ones who get on with it.
    Opportunities don’t come all the time, but with self-belief, and faith from those who guide, we can make sure the chances are handed to us if we work hard.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’Never give up, no matter what happens’

    ‘If it’s your dream to do well in football, then you can’t give up’

    ’There’s more to it than just somebody’s opinion’

    ’Nobody’s going to let you win'

    Leo Tolstoy's Coaching Wisdom Episode 10

    Leo Tolstoy's Coaching Wisdom Episode 10

    Rob continues his fascinating look at the philosophies of Leo Tolstoy, and the insightful ways in which his teachings can positively impact coaching and mentoring practices.

    In this episode, we look at the power of true listening, the importance of detachment, and what it means to “close the gap”.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    We are all students, and should embrace the attitude that we are always learning. Humility and curiosity are the gateways to knowledge.
    The results of any situation are not within our control. Embrace this fact and realise that the only control we have is over the present.
    Closing the gap means narrowing the space between how we think, how we speak and how we act. It is the alignment of these actions with who we are inside.
    Power does not come from physical action. It comes from thought and considered action as a result of that thought. 

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘A student is not afraid to try things and figure out what works, and what doesn’t’

    ‘You are responsible for the process, but you are not responsible for the outcome’

    ’There’s a huge difference between power and force’

    ‘Pain is a part of life'
