On episode 142, we welcome Steve Magness to discuss the short-term benefits and long-term costs of authoritarian coaching, the importance of distinguishing between the variations of pain to assess whether you’re in danger or could continue, cultivating positive self-talk in the form of second and third person speech to manage your inner-critic for better results, Brad Johnson’s positive relationship with coach Jon Gruden and what made it so, real toughness as comprised of the willingness to teach and respect everyone on your team, how demanding coaches sometimes last for a long time despite having poor relationships with their players, the four pillars of toughness, perfectionism engendering emotional and physical burnout, and the roles autonomy and self-knowledge play in fostering resilience.
