The Value of the Sporting Narrative

What value do stories play in sport? Making sense of the sporting narrative and being able to translate and challenge these ideas in our coaching is a critical part of player development.

Tradition plays a huge part in the systems with which we operate as coaches. Breaking the norm and creating a new narrative can be a catalyst for change. Joining us for this intriguing conversation will be Al Smith, Co-founder of myfastestmile on how the narratives around you can influence your coaching behaviour, performance and outcomes.

Player Development Editor, Dave Wright & Lead Researcher, James Vaughan host Al in a fascinating discussion which will reflect and challenge the systems we work within, the challenge of removing ego from your approach and the importance of stories as a means of sense making and building relational value in complex human systems.
