#045: How to embrace struggle and successfully mentor future NFL and professional Rugby players with Nick Winkelman
3 days ago
Ever wondered what it takes to coach and mentor successful professional athletes such as future NFL players or national team level Rugby players? Then this episode with highly sought after coach Nick Winkelman is for you. As a young and ambitious athlete in the NCAA Division I, the highest level in collegiate basketball, I had a reputation to be quite a hot head. I routinely got in elbow fights with opponents, shouting matches and more, sometimes even my own coaches and teammates. At this point in my life, this was the method I knew to deal with high pressure situations and oftentimes, it didn’t help me. I even went to see a sports psychologist to deal with my anger issues but it still took me quite a while and difficult situations before I learned to control my temper and look for other outlets to deal with stress. Back then, I never gave much credit to all the help I had received back then coming from coaches, teammates, physical trainers, and also my girlfriend back then. I never thought about how much went into coaching me and the other players on my team. If you think, coaching is easy, then you will certainly change your mind after this podcast episode with former NFL Draft Combine Coach and current performance coach for the Irish National Football Team Nick Winkelman. Nick Winkelman is a natural learner and highly curious about the newest research and methods to deal with his athletes. I was amazed by the diverse amount of information he employs to get better as a coach and a person. In this episode, we dig into his coaching process and what methods he uses to assess his athletes. We talk about dealing with difficult players, the psychology of learning, how to deal with struggle and which two qualities he values most. Moreover, you will find out how to separate good from bad research, which books and podcasts Nick recommends and the one advice he would give to all young trainers and coaches. As a former athlete, I greatly enjoyed this episode but even if you’re not from the world of sports, you will be able to take a bunch of insights away from this highly motivating episode. Enjoy!
