In our eighth episode of Powering Performance, we sat down with Dr. Brian Gearity, coach, professor, 3x author to hear how we can improve our coach/athlete relationship by examining the interactions and relationships that impact our athletes and their progress.
♦ 02:30- Intros & the path from powerlifting, to the MLB, to professorship.
♦ 13:00 Power-Knowledge Theory & the innate control a coach holds in the weight room. Power's all about how we influence other people. It's what establishes a relationship. Is the power you wield constructive or harmful?
♦ 18:00 Calling on your work. Learn how to evaluate your own experiences to recall and learn from each 'anecdote.'
♦ 22:00 Defining the coaching environment and its impacts on both yourself and your athletes. Time management & physical space can define a team's development.
♦ 27:00 The 'unintended effects' of your coaching and how to critique methodology. Here's how to create a positive structure to mitigate these effects. They aren't necessarily what you think they are...
♦ 34:44 How coaches exercise power & the problem with that familiar term, "buy in."
♦ 38:58 Defining microagression with some very real examples. Communication can be everything- especially across the coach and athlete relationship. Were you not entertained??
♦ 43:11 Women in sport coaching & the varying categories of bias in coaching.
♦ 48:08 Tools and examples to help improve your relationship with your athletes, based on Dr. Gearity's research and findings.
