Sports Talk

Season 2, Ep. 5

In this free and frank exchange of views we look inside life at the very top of elite coaching with Nigel Redman, former Team GB Olympic swimming coach, now England Rugby’s 'Kingmaker' and Head of Team Performance. And Chris McLeod who looks after the UK's top tennis talent in his role as lead strength and conditioning coach at the Lawn Tennis Association.

Together with host, Professor Neil Maiden, the panel discuss the importance of getting out of your comfort zone and listening to people with more diverse experiences and points of view; the difference between boundaries and barriers; how important the environment is to supporting or suppressing creativity; and the dead weight of tradition in sports coaching that impedes new and more creative ways of working.
