TMH 8 - Adam Brings the Threat Level Down

In this episode, we have Part One of my conversation with Dr. Adam Naylor. This is a wide-ranging discussion of topics in Sport Psychology. As such, I decided to keep the interview intact and present our conversation in (almost) it's entirety (I had one major coughing fit that I edited out, for example). 

Adam is a professor, author, and player development expert who can be found at Telos Sport Psychology Coaching.

I love talking to Adam about all things sport psych, but I brought him into the studio to talk about a recent article that he wrote contending that the Mental Skills are overrated.

The Mental Half is a show about the mental side of performance. We talk about the skills and philosophies needed to be at your best when the pressure is on. We focus on real-life cases in sport, performing arts, and other high stress situations where time and performance are of the essence.
