The Coach's Guide to Maximizing Trade Shows [ABCA]

Posted by Camille D.C. Sutton on Jan 3, 2017 2:39:11 PM

 

It's trade show season! Bring on the booths, the freebies, the clinics, the motivational speakers, and especially the chance to focus on nothing but the game.

Deep Practice: Secrets To Creating Skill

Posted by Camille D.C. Sutton on Nov 29, 2016 10:30:00 AM

 

"When you operate at the edge of your ability, when you're making errors, when you're struggling with a new concept -- your learning speed goes up 10x."

Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code seems counter intuitive, right? We usually connect failure with lack of ability or lack of talent. But what if we were wrong?
