87) "The Characteristics of Motivation; How To Speak The Language of Change" w Nick Winkleman

Nick Winkelman is the head of athletic performance & science for the Irish Rugby Football Union. Before working for Irish Rugby, Nick was the director of education and training systems for EXOS One of the PREMIER athletic development programs in the country.

Nick completed his PhD through Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions with a dissertation focus on motor skill learning and sprinting. Nick is a recognized speaker and consultant on human performance and coaching science and has numerous book chapters and peer reviewed papers focusing on the intersection between coaching language and athlete learning.

Nick Is the author of “The language of coaching: the Arte and science of teaching movement,” which is a phenomenal book not just about human movement, but learning, and how the human mind works

And that is why I wanted to have Nick on the show, because of his vast and unique knowledge of humans, how we think, how we learn, and why we do what we do.

Nick was gracious enough to chat with me all the way from Ireland, and we did have a few internet hiccups throughout the call, so there are a couple of brief moments where his audio cuts out, but this episode was so powerful and so packed full of knowledge, that It really doesn’t matter and I still couldn’t wait to share it with you
