I am delighted to be joined by Mike Ashford in this episode. Mike is a lecturer in Sport Coaching at Coventry University. His research interests include player and coach decision making, coach development and understanding how we can shape effective learning environments. Mike completed his PhD at Leeds Beckett University.
Mike is also a coach developer at Grey Matters, a company specialising in performance enhancement and coaching development for individuals, sporting/cultural organisations and systems.
Mike and I discuss two papers he has co-written along with Dr Andrew Abraham and Dr Jamie Poolton on decision making processes in team sports. We take a deep dive into these brilliant papers which can be found here https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2021.609127 and https://doi.org/10.3390/sports9050065
