I’m lucky enough to be joined by Todd Beane on this episode. Todd is a soccer coach and Founder of TOVO Training and TOVO Academy Barcelona. In TOVO Training, Beane has combined proven pedagogical practices of experts in the field of education with the visionary components of a total football legend into a dynamic and practical training methodology. Todd worked with Johan Cruyff for 14 years to create the Cruyff Institute for Sport Studies and to deliver total football training programs to professional clubs worldwide.
In this episode, Todd and I talk about putting managing self at the forefront of coaching; educating young players to make good life decisions; the importance of understanding the ‘why’; creativity coming from structure; having processes of health; front loading cognition and self-regulation; the challenge of coaching on the run; the relationship between intention, attention and mental intensity; dealing with bad days as a coach; and the art of co-coaching.
