    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.

    Ep. 46 "Ask the right questions" (Guest: Ben Wharfe from FIIT)

    Ep. 46 "Ask the right questions" (Guest: Ben Wharfe from FIIT)

    Sean and Mark are able to grab a chat Ben Wharfe, Chief People Officer for exercise brand https://fiit.tv/ (FIIT) about his own journey from a giant corporation into a startup, finding himself in the people business along the way.
    Ben talks about the FIIT Culture Book that he put together to articulate and illustrate the values, vision and behaviours of the company - you can read a copy of Volume 1 https://issuu.com/fiit/docs/fiit-culture-book-vol-1 (here) and how you might go about recruiting for diversity but also diversity of thought. He also surprises the guys by telling them that there have been people who have shown up to interview without even looking at the app!
    Sean also shamelessly angles himself as the next FIIT coach. His USP? A 'Dad-bod'.
    In the episode Sean mentions Brene Brown's https://brenebrown.com/dtl-podcast/ (Dare to Lead Podcast) and http://www.wtfpod.com/podcast (Marc Maron's).

    Ep. 43: "Whoever turns up in the room are the right people" (Guest: Anna Glarin)

    This episode Sean and Mark chat to Mark's colleague and co-artistic director of Waterloo Community Theatre about, amongst other things, making sure young people's voices are heard, the fear and excitement of the plan being no plan, and how that leads to a balance between freedom and guided discovery.

    They also talk teenage rebellion (Anna's as well as their groups) the importance and value of self reflection, and how it can be useful to have a messy person around.

    Sean brings up the Pimlico Academy.  A link to that news story is here.

    Anna also talks about the latest radio project of Waterloo Community Theatre - The Realist.  You can listen here.

    Ep. 42 "All about creating win-win situations" (Guest: Alex Tofalides of Inspion Sports)

    Ep. 42 "All about creating win-win situations" (Guest: Alex Tofalides of Inspion Sports)

    This week Sean and Mark join Alex Tofalides, international fencer and founder of Inspion Sports, to discuss taking a sport from the elite level right back to grassroots and working across all levels.  They talk about how 100% preparation applies as a rule no matter what level you are at, and how goals that you set should be based on things you can control.

    The talk about the dynamic of fencing on a team, where you face an opponent on your own but have your team behind you, and the positive impact on Alex of his Team GB coach and fencing legend Ziemek Wojciechowski (www.zfw-fencing.co.uk/ziemek-wojciechowski).

    In the episode they reference Outliers by Malcom Gladwell and Bounce by Matthew Syed and the work of sports psychologist Katie Warriner.
