This is the introduction to my presentation at the Long Beach Perform Better event next month.
This presentation will be different. It may not be what you expect. It will not be about the past. This will not be a nostalgia trip or rants from an old man about the good old days. Rather I will look back to gain a perspective, a historical context, to move forward with clarity and purpose. It will be about learning lessons from the past and the present to build a better future. It will be about what I know and what I do not know. It will be about successes and failures and what I have learned from both. There will be very little on drills and exercises, rather it will be a story, a narrative of searching for a better way, of developing a system and refining a method to build and rebuild a complete athlete. This will be about change – Why change, how to manage change, what to change, how to change and how to lead and innovate. This will be about my passion- coaching. A passion for excellence, no BS, no hype just good old fashioned teaching and training to guide people to be the best they can be. I hope you enjoy and learn from the presentation as much I have on this journey.
