Sep 9, 2020 | 0 comments

Dr. Coach Rick McGuire, one of the most prolific sport psychologists of our time takes us through the most notable sport psychology names and research of the last century. But don’t mistake this for just a boring history lesson! His expertise in the field not only lets him explain each contributor’s significance, but he’s able to tie them all together for the best practices of coaching. The lessons Coach McGuire teaches us in this episode are not only applicable to sport, but to life in general and, if these techniques are practiced, can help us all perform better.
