Brain In The Game Sport Mind Coaching Podcast
About This Show
Brain in the Game explores the mental aspect of training and competing at an elite level of sport.
Traditionally, we’re all very aware of the role of a physical coach, people who work with the bodies of athletes.
Mind coaching focuses on the brain and the cognitive area of an athlete, working with them on their strategies, their structure and their emotional welfare.
Brain in the Game is designed specifically for athletes, coaches, parents and crew as we unpack and understand what it takes to thrive as an elite athlete.
In each episode we will examine a different facet of sport from the perspective of the mind; covering interviews with some of the top athletes on the circuit and asking them what’s working for them now and what they’re looking at doing in the future.
We’re talk to coaches and gain a better understanding of the changing face of professional coaching.
We also delve into biomechanics and understand the different dynamics of the integration of those in professional sport.
Some of the techniques discussed will be time tested and others will be cutting edge. Brain In The Game provides a practical insight to the mental mind-field that is elite sport and demonstrates how a strong mental programme can make all the difference to an athlete’s results.

Brain in the Game - Sports Mind Coaching Podcast: Episode #68 - Do I fit the selectors mould or do I create my own style - hosted by Dave Diggle Who are you playing for? Episode #68: It’s an age old conundrum for elite and professional athletes, “do I change who I am and how I play to fit the mould of the selectors' current criteria OR do I back my own unique skills and become the player I know I can be?” And the answer isn’t ‘Immediately” that simple - surprisingly. In this episode of Brain in the Game, however, we will examine the pros and cons of each option and then look at the sustainability of growth model “Consolidate - Construct - Implement”, skill development and performance sustainability. We will unpack a number of impacts on you as a performer and as an individual person when selecting to “fit the mould” or “to be you”. So buckle in for this controversial topic and let's dive into this rabbit hole. Check out this episode of Brain in the Game, where I help rebalance this by showing key strategies in building a sustainable self-belief.
